Helper for an elderly and disabled person (Town of Ithaca)

compensation: $13/hr
employment type: part-time

Wanted: Helper for an older and disabled person who is trying to regain her strength after recovering from pneumonia. She needs help with showering, getting support hose on, and relearning how to dress herself after an extended hospitalization. Could also use help motivating her to do exercises, and to accompany her to walk for exercise. Must be patient, as she walks slowly.

Job might also include housecleaning and odd jobs, including organizing, and maybe light gardening or snow shoveling. We'll use the skills you have! Flexible hours. 5-20 hours/week.

Must be at least 18 years old and/or have a high school diploma. Reasonably able-bodied. Having a car would be helpful. Examples of possible odd jobs: helping doing laundry, ironing and mending, snow shoveling, a little filing, minor household repairs. These are not job requirements, and you do not have to be able to perform all of these tasks.

Please send names and contact info for at least three work references. Be prepared to answer some initial questions via email, so make sure that craigslist email does not go to spam.
