Hello, we are looking for a CNA or experienced individual who can help us with our mom. She is diagnosed with ALS Lou Gehrig disease. She is not able to walk, has no upper mobility, voice is practically gone and difficulty with swallowing. We primarily need someone to help with turning mom on her sides while she sleeps and using the restroom (wed-fri; 7:30-2:30p). We may possibly add two more days but that is still undecided. My mom is very sweet and scared of what is happening to her body so we need someone with alot of patience and is very understanding. This is only temporarily since the hopsice staff are giving us a short life expectancy for her.
- Very receptive to outside help
- Age range: 65 to 74 years old
