Looking for someone who: + speaks english + knows how to or is willing to learn an in/out catheter (0-3 times/day) + lift a lot of deadwight. Mom is 125lbs but other caregivers have said it is harder to lift her because of her stiffness. This is an absolute must. Mom needs anywhere from full transfers all the time to light help. + other members of family lives in household so willing to unload family dishwasher, some laundry, etc.

Sample itinerary:

6am-9am- dressing, disposable briefs, laundry from night before, help Sheila arrive at breakfast calm and collected. must have a positive attitude especially during this shift and good emotional support towards Sheila if she had a bad night where she loses control of the urine and her clothes, mattress cover are all wet and she feels down. A "it's no problem" attitude needed. Help with stiffness moving her legs and arms to warm her up.

9am-10am- help make breakfast for sheila and serve. fruit, cereals, eggs.

10-4 - clean up from breakfast, go to pool with Sheila or another outing. Assemble and serve Lunch. Pool 2-3 times/week min. Some of this time you may just be "on call" always being transport wheelchair for a backup

4-7:30- be on call while Sheila teaches piano lessons (prepare dinner?) clean up house

7:30- 11 dinner and night time personal care routines
