Need an honest, loyal, and experienced caregiver located near Oakland, CA to help care for my mother. Care is needed on Fridays, and Saturdays.

Being a Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) is a definite plus. Be the first to apply and be considered for this great opportunity!

About this Care Recipient

My mother is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weigh approx. 210 pounds. She suffered a stroke approximately 8 years ago and we have been taking care of her in her home with my dad. She is a former city official and her mind is sharp. She has difficulty speaking as a result of the stroke but can communicate. She has weakness on her left side but can walk with assistance. Her team of caregivers who take care of her Monday through Sunday, during days and evenings, is very good. They love my mom very much. We need assistance on Friday and Saturday evenings. Not every weekend, as some of the other caregivers may want to work. She has a very supportive family who contact, visit, and care for her very much. The evening shift requires that she be assisted to the bedside commode and also assisted with oral care. She may want dinner, but most of the time, the day time caregiver has already prepared and served dinner. She has a routine so it's just a matter of learning it.
