TO START ASAP: Personal Care Attendant for Disabled Man, $20/hr (Central East Austin)

compensation: $20/hr

I'm a 30 year old disabled guy looking for an aide to help me on weekend mornings. I use an electric wheelchair and need assistance dressing, bathing, and preparing meals due to a form a muscular dystrophy. Basically, I need someone to help me get ready for the day on Saturday and Sunday mornings, approximately 7:30 am- 10:00 am. The exact start and end times are negotiable depending on your schedule.

This is a great gig for students or people interested in a career in healthcare. A little about me: I'm into art, design, leftward politics, good conversation, and books. I live with my girlfriend and a couple of friends in a house on the east side.

Applicants must:
- pass a background check
- have or get a current CPR certification. A hands-on course is required.
- have reliable transportation. Applicants who live in or near central East Austin are preferred.
- be able to safely lift and carry me (I weigh about 90 pounds).

Experience in healthcare is not required. I've been training my own aides for years and am very comfortable explaining what needs to be done. Compensation is $20/hr.

**If interested, please send me a email explaining why you're a good candidate. Thanks!***

I will delete this post when I find someone. Thanks!
