Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello,
I'm looking for an English speaking live-in caregiver for my 85 year old mother. She lives in San Jose, California and is currently in a nursing home for rehabilitation after a hospital stay but she would like to go home. We will have other caregivers to assist and backup the live-in caregiver. My Mom needs assistance with daily living, so dressing, toileting, transfers, etc. She has a good memory and enjoys conservation. Her home is in a Suburb but near a big mall and within walking distance of many restaurants and stores. It's also close to public transportation.

Job Description

My Mom is temporarily in a skilled nursing facility after a prolonged hospital stay. She will likely be ready to go home in October but we don't have that date yet. She has a feeding tube which we are hoping is temporary but the caregiver will need to be trained in how to give her "meals" to her through the tube and keep it clean. I'm told this is not difficult. She is incontinent so she wears diapers and needs assistance changing those. She also needs assistance getting to/from the bathroom, transfers from her bedroom to living room, help dressing, daily care and running errands. She is mentally fine so her issues are all physical. The feeding tube is the result of a new health issue so she is adjusting to that.
