About the job
We are looking for part-time care (9 to 14 hours a week) and companionship for our daughter Lisa Joy who has a disability called Rett Syndrome. She cannot communicate verbally, so a caretaker has to be patient and interactive. Most things have to be done for her because she does not have the purposeful use of her hands and cannot walk without assistance. The responsibilities include dressing, feeding, and bathing her, as well as reading with her, taking her for walks, and taking her to the local parks, library, and stores. The person needs to be fluent in English. Nursing skills are not required. A sedan car is necessary to facilitate getting her in and out of the car. We have a preference for a caregiver who is between 20 and 40 years old and an active Christian because Lisa Joy loves Jesus. The hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 6 pm, and Fridays from 3 to 9 pm. A work permit is required.
