Personal assistant (Palm Bay)

compensation: $15.40/hr
employment type: employee's choice

I am looking for physically strong non-smoking young women to assist me with all aspects of personal care and daily living one to two 24 hour shifts per week/weekend. All shifts start at 9 AM and end the next morning at 9 AM. You can sleep during the overnight hours after I go to bed (I do not go to sleep early) but must be available to assist me to reposition as needed.

I'm an active 60 year old married woman. I need assistance with all aspects of my personal care, cooking, household chores that include occasional home maintenance, light repairs, cleaning, light gardening and administrative tasks. I also need someone who can drive me in my van. I use a power wheelchair and numerous home health gadgets.

I am retired and enjoy spending time with my husband , friends, and family. I like cooking, writing music, watching movies, reading, computer work, gardening, outdoor activities and such. I sing on the worship team in our church. I am a responsible employer with 40 years of experience hiring, training, and working with my assistants. I am looking for responsible, organized, careful, and meticulous people who respect my home and privacy.

Personal Care does not only mean things like taking the person to the bathroom, it means assisting a person with a disability to do the things they would normally do themselves if they did not have a disability. I have my own private life, feelings and interests. I am one of those people with a disability that you may see at your job, or out to dinner, or at the beach. I live a very independent fulfilling life because I have Personal Assistants to help me.

I am not looking for a companion - to do this job well you must be able to cheerfully physically assist me and at the same time give me the privacy and space I and my loved ones need to function normally. I need you to, in a way, let me borrow your hands to help me do things my own way. My husband and I require the same privacy as any other couple would.

Please include your phone number in your response. YOU MUST HAVE A WORKING PHONE TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS POSITION .
