He I am looking for a personal care attendant available for casual to part-time work. Experience preferred. The shifts are from 8:30 a.m. I have a spinal cord injury, and I am on Self Managed Care (meaning that I hire and train my own staff). At the moment, I am looking for someone interested in working casually, but occasionally picking up shifts in the morning or the evening. Weekend availability is good.

Ability to communicate effectively in English is essential. Must be able to work independently and under close supervision. It would be an asset to own your own vehicle for transportation. I do live in the downtown area.

You should have some cooking skills and know how to look after a household, including housework of all aspects (some minor maintenance skills would be welcomed).
