compensation: $15/hr
employment type: employee's choice

Inclusive Community Resources, LLC is a Berkeley-based supported living agency dedicated to empowering adults with developmental and/or physical disabilities. We are seeking friendly, reliable attendants to work with one of our female clients in downtown Berkeley.

Our client is 36 years old and has cerebral palsy. She loves literature and is fairly fluent in Irish. She is new to the area and is very interested in exploring all that Berkeley has to offer. She needs assistance with administrative tasks such as phone calls, mail, bills and appointments. She also needs help with meals, eating, physical care, and toileting.

Our client is comfortable working with people of any gender. We really would like someone who follows her lead well and is also good at follow-through. She can bear weight on her legs but does need assistance with transfers. You don't need to be a body builder, but you must be strong and agile enough to help with pivot transfers and positioning (our client weighs 95 lbs).

The ideal candidate would have some kind of background in pre-PT/OT/ST or rehab/fitness or pre-nursing/pre-med students since this position will give you very good exposure to a home care environment (however this is not required). Another plus is if you are handy around the house and could assist with minor household repairs!

We are currently hiring for two shifts per week. Ideally we would like one person for both shifts.

We are hiring for the following shifts:

Tuesday 9am-9pm

Wednesday 9am-9pm

QUALIFICATIONS:
You must be at least 18 years old with reliable transportation and a clean driving record. You must be able to pass the Department of Justice fingerprint clearance and a background check prior to your first day of work. You must be able to obtain a clear TB test screening within 2 weeks of employment and CPR/First Aid certification within 3 months of employment. You must be mature, patient, reliable, trustworthy, and a self-starter.

COMPENSATION:
Hourly pay is $15. Employees who work at least 35 hours per week qualify for medical and dental benefits. We also offer paid vacation time, paid sick leave and a 401k retirement plan for eligible employees. There are ample opportunities to work additional hours within our agency, both with this client and with other clients in the area.

TO APPLY:
Send a cover letter and resume to the link above.
