Personal Care Attendant Needed For 30 Year Old Quadriplegic
"Help me live my life and make a new friend while working one on one."
Great opportunity for someone who is interested in kinesiology, nursing, OT, PT, or speech therapy.
Part time
No Experience Required
Starts immediately
Near UC Berkeley
Rate of Pay: Starting $18 an hour with raise over time.
AM Shift Needed (no need to be available for all these):
Monday/Wed/Thur - 6:30 - 8:30 am
Saturday 8-10 am
Sunday 8- 12 pm
Am shifts consist of performing my range of motion(stretching), dressing, preparing breakfast, light
housekeeping, (shower and restroom assist on longer days) and setting things up for the day.
About me: I am male quadriplegic with some arm movement but not much in my hands. I am currently
studying at UC Berkeley and stay quite busy. For fun I enjoy tinkering and building new electronics and
tools to become more independent. I also enjoy attending concerts, trying new foods, Skydiving, water
skiing, exploring new areas, and meeting new people and learning about their beliefs and aspirations.
About you: I am looking to find a kind, energetic and reliable person to help me with personal care
(dressing, bathing, transfers etc. ), house upkeep and food preparation (health food). I am laid back but it
is important to be punctual and reliable so I can make it to class on time. I am looking for someone that
can work hard but also make a new friend and be social/good humored so working together will be
enjoyable. I am looking for someone who can work for the foreseeable future (many people have helped
me 1-6 years) assuming it works out great for both of us.
