Job description

In search of an honest, nurturing, and enthusiastic caregiver to take care of my wife, located near Highlands Ranch, CO. Hours will be Monday through Friday from 4 pm- 9 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 9 pm. Care routine consists of diapering, hygiene, bed to wheelchair transfers, range of motion stretching of arms and legs, talking to or read stories, take on walks, listen to music/tv. It is important to me that the caregiver does more than just tending to my wife's needs but being a friend whom my wife looks forward to being with every day.

About this Care Recipient

My wife who is 54 years old suffered a debilitating stroke 2 years ago. Prior to the stroke my wife had a professional career in Accounting and was a very involved mother of two children. As a result she cannot walk, does not speak (but somewhat understands when spoken to), is incontinent, has no vision, and nourished through a feeding tube. Her care routine consists of diapering, hygiene, bed to wheelchair transfers, range of motion stretching of arms and legs, talking to or read stories, take on walks, listen to music/tv. It is important to me that the caregiver does more than just tending to my wife's needs but being a friend whom my wife looks forward to being with every day.
