CURRENTLY WE HAVE THE
FOLLOWING OPEN POSITIONS:


HOME CARE PROVIDER – Generous Tax Exempt Stipend – Portsmouth Area

One Sky Futures is in search of a home/ Home Care Provider for a 63 year old woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury approximately 8 years ago. She has rebounded a great deal in that time, learning to walk and talk again. At the time of her accident she was a single mother working 2 jobs. A lot of those independent characteristics remain with her.

She has a full 30 hour day program with an established and very trusted staff, Mon-Fri 9am-3pm.

Ideally, we are seeking a Home Care Provider with a home on the Seacoast. She has currently been living in the Raymond-Deerfield-Candia communities; but would love to be closer to Portsmouth area. First floor bedroom or handicap access to her living space would be required.

As a result of her accident, she has a slow gait and can be unsteady on her feet – she ambulates very slowly using a cane in the home and a walker in the community. While she does ambulate independently, she should have someone close by if there are steps, uneven terrain, icy/slippery conditions or while she’s getting used to a new place. She can do stairs, very slowly and needs someone to walk in front of her. She will use her cane and a railing.

While she does toilet independently, she struggle at times with “clean up”. A lot of sensitivity is required, as she is very proud and may be embarrassed if she makes a mess. She requires assistance with ADLs, and oversight for safety, especially until she is comfortable in her new environment. Once a relationship is built, the Home Care Provider’s assistance can be faded to oversight with cues for task completion.

She enjoys animals, especially horses; being social, art, crafts, and many other activities. Being involved in the kitchen is important to her. She used to cook all the time and would love to share a home with a Home Care Provider who can help foster her love of cooking for her again. She has strong family involvement – her 3 children take turns taking her out on most Sundays and holidays. Family is extremely important to her. She would ideally like to feel a part of a household and have a mutual respecting relationship with whom she lives with. *Preferred not to have small children in the home.*

Compensation is in the form of a monthly tax-exempt stipend. Minimum monthly documentation required.
