Home Health Caregiver needed in Cross Lanes from around 11am to 3pm, Monday thru Friday. If you don’t want to work every day of the week, that’s okay. We will find caregivers who want to work those days you aren’t able to work. The pay is $10/hr. Mom is 90 years old and needs help walking or being pushed through the house with her sit-down walker. She will also need breakfast and probably lunch prepared for her, but this is usually nothing more than cereal for breakfast and a sandwich, salad or something simple for lunch. She will need help dressing in the morning. Mom can pretty much take care of herself in the bathroom. You’ll just have to take her there and help her sit down and help her stand up and get back onto her walker chair afterwards. Please contact me if you’d be interested or forward this to someone you know who might be. Thank you. Mike Morris, 304-437-0898
