Yes, the job is still open, please send me an email or call the landline phone number directly, no text. If your number is not a local area code, please call again until you speak to someone, landline phone number doesn't have long distance, thanks.

Disabled woman (from spinal cord injury) in wheelchair is looking for a caring and reliable caregiver, no experience is necessary and training will be given for a few days until you're ready to work on your own. 

This is a part-time job, but can increase to full-time. She needs someone 7 days a week, morning and evening, so please willing to work 6-7 days a week and have some flexibility to ensure possible coverage with other caregivers.

Please be local and reliable as she has very low mobility and is fully dependent on the caregiver on duty to transfer in and out of bed, but she has some mobility once she is on her wheelchair.

Morning shift caregiver must start work at 7am, duties include:
- Personal care, catheter drainage and maintenance
- Realignment, rubbing and stretching exercises
- Helping with going to the bathroom and showers (every other day)
- Dressing
- Transfers between bed and wheelchair
- Lifting and repositioning once in the wheelchair
- Housekeeping
- Meals
- Anything else that she needs help with

Must be able to lift as she is 5'8" and 150 lbs. Must be able to reach over and around the wheelchair to ensure she is sitting correctly.

Nighttime shift may be available and is 2 hours, with prepping supplies for the next shift, change of clothes and transfer from wheelchair to bed.

Job requires that you understand the routine, it can get tiring, there is a lot of standing on your feet, it pays minimum wage to start (set by IHSS), $12 an hour for normal days and $15 an hour for bath days. But you will be working inside a house, instead of an office, and there might be some flexibility (in wage and schedule) if this is the right job for you, let's discuss, and please be authorized to work in the US as this will be paid via IHSS (will require orientation, fingerprinting and background check).

If interested and would like more information, please send me an email telling me about yourself (if you are a student, employed, not employed, where you'll be driving from and your availability).

If you decide you'd like to become an IHSS provider, the recipient must request an enrollment packet to be mailed to you by calling the provider enrollment line. You will then receive information on the next orientation dates and forms to fill out.

I'll help you with the process a much as I can. Thank you.
