2+ Personal Care Assistant Positions

I am in Conroe (near I-45 and 1488) and am looking to create a caregiving team for myself to provide me with assistance seven days a week. Initially, I am looking for 2 more part-time caregivers to cover three days per week, three hours per day. Ideally, this position would be Tuesday and Thursday, 7 AM-10 AM and Sunday 6 AM-8:30 AM. While I can be somewhat flexible in selecting the time we agree upon, once we agree on the days and times… Please be here when you agree to be here.

Pay range is $10-$13 per hour.

I am looking for someone to assist me with personal care, household chores, and physical assistance. This includes but, is NOT limited to the following: bathing, changing, dressing, grooming, repositioning, and occasionally doing laundry, dishes, and light housekeeping. *NO EXPERIENCE OR CERTIFICATIONS REQUIRED*

Applicants MUST:
– Be Comfortable Doing Personal Care
– Be Able to Pass a Background Check
– Be Able to Follow Directions
– Be Fluent in English
– Be Easy-Going
– Be Detail-Oriented

While the selected applicants will be employed through In-Home Attendant Services I am something like the local (very local, my home) Human Resources branch office. I select, hire, train, do regular evaluations of my own caregivers.

Here is a little bit about me. My name is Lisa and I am a 50-something-year-old female. I was born with a neuromuscular disorder that was supposed to kill me by age 2, but I didn’t listen to the doctors then… or now. Currently, I am a quadriplegic but I do have full sensation. I get into my wheelchair (powered) using a Hoyer lift. Most times, you’ll find me attached to a computer or other device that broadens my universe. I enjoy teaching at a university level. Some of my hobbies include science fiction and Lutheran theology. Both my Mother and I have faced health issues this year. As a result, my sister, brother-in-law, nieces, and nephew invited us to share their home and made us quite welcome. We all are looking for a team of Personal Care Assistants to help make our lives run more smoothly. More importantly, this will help me gain more independence in my own life. I am eagerly looking forward to meeting you.

Serious applicants only, please!

Learning to use a telephone

For years, I’ve been working on the assumption that I cannot use a cell phone. I can’t swipe or pinch or twiddle

Typical selfie
Where am I?

various thingies. After seeing what people post, I didn’t particularly think I was missing out on much.

Then… I discovered the awful truth! I WAS WRONG!

There is a device called TECLA. 

Tecla lets you use a single switch (on off) to use a cell phone or tablet. Granted, you don’t have to go THAT bare-bones. You can use as many as four switches or a joystick.

Today, I discovered the camera. (Yes, I knew it was there before. I had even taken pictures. I just realized how much fun this was!) Here is an intentional selfie. I deleted the unintentional ones.

I double-dog-dare you to come up with a caption for this one. Better yet, make up a story about where I am!
