About who needs care: W is a recent quadriplegic with a C3 spinal cord injury. He has recently been transferred out of rehab and is now living on his own (with support from friends and family). He needs assistance with getting in/out of the chair/bed in the morning and evening, dressing, toileting, bathing, and doing his insulin shots.
About the care needs: we are looking for someone with familiarity with diabetes, experience using a Hoyer lift and working with Spinal Cord Injury patients who cannot move themselves. Also, familiarity with helping patients with their toileting routine (using suppositories).
W is pretty easy to get along with, so anyone with a good sense of humor and a friendly nature will be a great match.
Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
