I am a wheelchair-using male looking for assistance with my morning routine in my home every OTHER weekend mornings (Saturdays & Sundays every 2 weeks).
SHIFT LENGTH: Saturdays: 2.25 hours; Sundays: 3.5 hours
WAGE: Highly competitive. Please inquire.
LOCATION: Frontier Drive (Doon area) -- just off the 401 near Conestoga College. I am NOT on a bus route. Please apply ONLY if you have your drivers license and a vehicle to drive here on weekends. While I appreciate all interest in the position, please DO NOT apply if you would need to walk, bicycle, or take the bus to my home from the College area or elsewhere.
This job involves assisting me with PERSONAL CARE tasks, including bowel and bladder management, showering, dressing, grooming, positioning in my wheelchair, etc. Prior personal care experience is NOT a requirement as full training is provided. I am fully capable of directing my care - I just need somebody to be my arms and legs for a few hours every other weekend morning.
This is NOT a cash job. I am a part of the Direct Funding Program, which is a program funded by the Ministry of Health that enables adults with physical disabilities to become employers of their own helpers. So, rather than working for a bureaucratic healthcare provider, you get to work directly for and with the person with the disability (me). See www.dfontario.ca for more info.
If you ARE a dependable person with a positive attitude and are just looking to make some decent, easy money for a few hours every other weekend, PLEASE APPLY!
Please let me know if you have any questions. If you are interested in this job, please reply with a resume. Thanks a lot!
