Job description

I am seeking an enthusiastic and considerate caregiver located near Happy Valley, OR to help care for my mother while I am away from home. My schedule varies but I'm usually looking for either a full day or half day of care (either morning or afternoon-evening) and the occasional split shift (for example, 7-10am and 2-6pm) on Tuesdays, Fridays, and occasionally Saturdays, at least one day a week to start as soon as possible. I'm looking for someone who can be somewhat flexible, as I usually don't get much notice when I have to be away from home. The caregiver will be responsible for performing the following: meal prep, medication reminders, grooming, companionship, and transferring & mobility. My mom uses a 4-wheeled walker and has balance issues in addition to dementia, so she needs stand-by assistance when walking around, a little help getting out of her chair, and someone who can put her shoes on for her so she doesn't tip over doing that. She also smokes in the bathroom and often is slower and more off balance afterward. Only serious applicants will be considered. Female caregivers preferred, the hourly rate for this job is $18. Be the first to apply and be considered for this great opportunity! **Optimal Aging approved caregivers only**
