Job Description

I am a 56 year old Christian man without children. My name is Jeff and I live in a new house in a nice area of Galveston. I don't smoke and only drink occassionaly. I use a wheelchair now & need a caregiver because I fractured my neck in a diving accident but I am still a very happy and healthy person with a great love for life. After my injury I had to find a new way to earn money so I got into the real estate business and work from my house, so most of my day is spent here at home. I’m unable to stay in my home alone at night because if there was a fire or some emergency I would not be able to get myself out of bed but I'm ok alone when i'm up in my wheelchair. I can do some housework, take care of my paperwork, etc., but i need help getting in/out of bed, dress/undress, & shower 3 times each week. I’m looking for someone who would like a “live-in” position. On average, I would only need your assistance for a total of about 3 hrs. each day. All other time would be free to do whatever you like. There are lots of interesting things to enjoy here on the island. I can pay our electricity, water, gas, cable tv, wi-fi and $350 in cash per week(no alcoholics or drug abusers, please)I hope you’re not offended by the amount I’m offering but I have no insurance to cover this expense. Thanks for your consideration. Jeff
