Part Time Support Worker

Job Description

Part-Time Support Worker for Woman with MS

I am currently looking for a support worker with availability on Mondays. Times can be flexible but looking for a couple hours in the morning to get me up for the day and then midday support while my husband is at work. Possibility of more hours can be available. I would also love to hear from anyone who might be looking for casual/on call work to be a part of my back up list.

A bit about me: I am 49 years old, female in a wheelchair living with MS. I live in Lantzville (about 6 mins from Woodgrove Mall) with my husband and we have 1 dog, 1 cat. I am easy going, flexible and self direct my care. Needing help with my care is still very new to me and I am trying (struggling some days) to find a new normal that my life is now. I have recently transferred from VIHA Home Support to the CSIL program and am looking for another care aide (or more) to add to my team.

My daily routine may include:

Morning Support – wash, dress, catheter care, a stretching routine and transfer to w/c via over bed lift. Tidy bedroom/bathroom, start laundry if needed and breakfast/tidy kitchen

Midday Support – lunch/snack, strength/exercise program, toileting assistance, laundry/housekeeping as needed, projects around the home, getting out in the yard/gardening, shopping/errands/appointments or going for walks and meal prep

Familiar with over bed and portable floor lift and/or willing to learn. Willing to learn/perform guided stretching and ROM routine

Pay is $25/hour and paid activities such as coffee, treats, etc on occasion on times we are out

Drivers Abstract and Criminal Records check will be required

If you feel this may fit with your availability, please send me a message. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you
