We are looking for a reliable, responsible, capable individual to care for an 85-year-old, male stroke survivor on the weekends. We need someone (or two people) for Saturdays from 4-8 p.m. and Sundays from 9am-8 p.m. Also, every last Saturday of the month from 9am-8 p.m.
The gentleman is fairly big - 6'1, 225 lbs and requires being transferred using a hydraulic patient lift, so the job is sometimes physical and requires a knowledge of proper body mechanics to assist him. He is rehabilitating back to independence and needs someone to engage him in exercises, activities and to encourage him to do things on his own. Light housekeeping and assisting him. Please have a helpful attitude and be willing to take instructions, esp. regarding safety.
