Looking for a retired adult (or anyone with a flexible schedule) to share caring for my wife (who has MS) with me, in exchange for free rent and a weekly $100-150 stipend. A good deal of your "on call time" would be spent at our wonderful residence on the Oneida River. If you like nature and waterfront life, this may be the perfect, win-win situation for both you and me. Experience using a slide board and/or Hoyer lift is a plus. You must be a non-smoker, health care training is a plus, but not required. You need to have a fair amount of physical strength, so you can help her transfer from her wheelchair to her bed or commode. Some light housekeeping, cooking and other chores would be expected. References are required. Please e-mail me a little info about yourself and why you might be well-qualified for this position. Please include your phone # so we can arrange to meet in person to discuss the details. Thanks. :) Your free rent would be in a separate residence of ours, about 5 miles away, so you need to have a car. A single person would be greatly preferred but we might consider a well-qualified married couple (no children please).
** We are also looking for an hourly person to work part-time at $13/hr. in mostly 2 hour shifts.
