I am a young professional woman with a physical, mobility disability - currently seeking a PSW for part-time, 5-15 hours a week, depending on mutual schedules.
Pay is $17.00/hour
I require assistance with:
-transfers in and out of bed (I have an electric ceiling lift)
-toileting and washing/bathing
-all aspects of grooming from shaving to applying lotion
-help with hair, make-up application, nail-trimming/filing/polish
-meal prep (some cooking ability an asset) and feeding
-light housecleaning and laundry
-outings, including though not necessarily limited to: special events, medical appointments, shopping, recreational
-A G licence is also an asset, though not required.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE OR TRAINING REQUIRED. I am more interested in the type of person you are and whether or not we mesh than lots of prior experience. You will receive on-the-job, paid training if hired.
I do not smoke and prefer a non-smoker.
I am easy-going and personable with a good sense of humour. I'm looking for people who will jive with my personality: liberal, open, honest, good communicators. We would not be a good match if your values are ultraconservative or if you are unable to respect mine. It is my goal for us to develop a safe, productive, and comfortable working relationship.
I can be extremely busy at times and require someone who considers themselves to be energetic and a self-starter.
You must be available to start immediately.
Please note that because PSW work is not regulated, I will be asking every considered applicant for a police background check for working with vulnerable populations.
If you are interested in discussing this position further or applying, please reply with an updated resume including a cover letter which can also be a bit more on the personal side: I want to know about you. Tell me who you are as a person, your relevant experience (if any) and why you are interested in this position.
Shortlisted applicants will be contacted for a brief phone screening prior to setting up and in-person interview.
