We are a small family of three living in Lake Forest Park. We are in search of a part-time caregiver for our 13yr old son with cerebral palsy.
The care hours would be M-Th, 3p-7p, but can offer more hours if needed. We'd love to hire someone who's worked with non-verbal, non-mobile clients.
Job requires some minor lifting (he's 65 lbs), and we have a Hoyer lift to assist with that. Transfers would be from wheelchair to bed to toilet chair, only.
Our son has a G-Tube and is fed both through his tube and by mouth. No medications required.
He uses a toilet chair and uses diapers. We have all the gear required to get him around the house and for him to have a normal set of activities (walker, stander, swing, stroller, accessible van).
To spend the time, he really enjoys having books read to him, listening to music and going for walks around the neighborhood. He's a pretty quiet pre-teen that enjoys his routine of an after school snack, a long nap, bathroom visit, being read to and then listening to music his room until mom or dad get home from work.
