Job description

I'm in need of support after a surgical procedure on Thursday, 1/25. I will need a ride home from the surgery and at least 24 hours of care, starting around noon or later on Thursday, until 5pm on Friday. I will not be able to use my right arm and will need assistance with meal prep, bathing, dressing, toileting, walking, and medication reminders. I will also be recovering from sedation and will need the caregiver to keep an eye on me if my judgment's impaired. The hourly rate for this job is $16. Female caregiver preferred. **Optimal Aging diamond caregivers only**

About this Care Recipient

I have a dog but she will be boarded while I'm recovering. I live in a tiny house and will be sleeping on the couch downstairs, so the caregiver can stay in my sleeping loft, but the stairs don't have a railing.
