Job description

I am seeking a loyal caregiver located near Phoenix, AZ to help care for Mother. I am in need of help 6-7 days per week from 8am to 3pm Sun to Thurs and 8-12pm, 4-7pm on Fridays and Saturdays (subject to flexibility on exact schedule). Existing caregiver ends duties this week so looking for immediate placement. The activities of daily living performed by the caregiver will include medication reminders, bathing (full bath and sponge baths), grooming, meal prep, changing diapers regularly and applying cream, companionship, and wheelchair transfers from bed to bathroom (on occasion) and bed to shower (as needed depending on incontinence, but no less than 2 days per week). When mom is occupied with TV or rest, would like laundry, bathroom & kitchen cleaning and main room tidying. Must be COVID negative (as mom is "high risk"), wear mask at all times and do frequent hand washing/surface cleaning. Only serious applicants will be considered. Thank you!

About this Care Recipient

My mom is in her early 70s and lives with dementia, incontinence and mobility challenges. She is generally a nice person, a bit introverted, but can become irritable when trying to motivate her to do things she doesn't feel like doing (i.e. showers, toilet trips, eating certain foods and exercising can be challenging to motivate her). She has a sense of humor!
