Caregiver (DSP) - Optimistic, Friendly Woman
Are you looking for an awesome job where you get to make a difference every day? If so, UCP Oregon might have the perfect job for you!
UCP Oregon is an exciting and empowering place to work. We help adults who experience developmental disabilities to live the life of their dreams—whether that’s living independently, working in a great job, or pursuing their interests and hobbies.
We’re currently seeking a full-time caregiver “Personal Assistant” who will support a woman who lives in her own apartment in SE Portland and experiences developmental disabilities. She is an optimistic, friendly woman that likes to access the community. She is eager to work with a personal assistant that will value time spent in the community as well as downtime in the home. She likes nature, and enjoys outings to parks, the zoo, shopping at the mall, and the Rose Garden. She loves arts & crafts, and would love her personal assistant to craft with her.
Spirituality and family play a large role in her life, and her personal assistant may need to assist her to attend weekly congregation services. She is respectful of all beliefs, and asks that her staff extend the same respect to her. She is friendly and direct, but needs staff to be patient and give her time to fully communicate her thoughts.
You will also work together on household chores, cooking, attending medical appointments, and running errands. She needs substantial assistance with showering, dressing, taking medications, shopping, cooking, physical therapy, and using her adaptive equipment.
You’ll work one shift per week totaling 42 hours: 8pm on Friday to 2pm on Sunday. *You’ll also work your regular hours on Agency holidays.
