Seeking Senior Caregiver on Lopez Island

We are looking for someone who can help my parents during the week. My 77-year-old dad has Parkinson's Disease and my mom needs help taking care of him as she is getting burnt out. Duties include getting him up in the morning, helping him shower and dress, feeding him breakfast and keeping him company. He has periods of confusion and is impulsive (doesn't remember his physical limitations), but also periods of great clarity where you can see his humor, positivity and good spirit.

Here is our ideal solution. We have a very nice furnished one-bedroom apartment adjacent to the house. The caregiver would come over Sunday night or early Monday morning and stay until Friday afternoon. We can leave a car at the ferry terminal so they don't need to drive on. We would work out a schedule for the week and would pay for a minimum of 40 hours, even if that much time isn't worked. The caregiver is strong enough to help maneuver my dad in and out of bed or chairs or help him when he goes limp from low blood pressure. The caregiver speaks English clear enough that the old people can easily understand them. Ideally, the caregiver has experience working with seniors who have physical limitations but we can also train you. The caregiver would take the initiative on helping out in all aspects including cleaning up from meals or laundry but also would know when to duck out to give my parents privacy. Occasionally my mom goes off-island and needs someone to stay overnight with my dad; all additional hours would be compensated for.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, please send me an email and include a resume or at least why you think you are a good candidate and what your availability is. It is an option to live full time in the apartment if that is preferable. posted 2/24
