Adult female (40s) quadriplegic needs assistance getting out of bed, into bathroom and then into power wheelchair in the morning so she can enjoy the rest of the day pursuing her passions of reading comic books (and anime), playing video games and watching (bad) horror movies. Her mental function is at an adult level. Patient's senior citizen mother lives in the home and had been caretaker until recently when due to a heart condition. Mom is on site though to provide some assistance (and helpful tips) but doc says no lifting! Hoyer style sling lift in home, patient weighs approx 140. While we would love to have the same person come every morning, we are certainly open to splitting the job. Possibility of additional late afternoon/bedtime hours if caregiver is interested. Non-smoking home, medium size dog.
