Job post for a personal care assistant

Hi! My name is Amelia O’Hare and I am a graduate student studying landscape architecture and urban design. I am passionate about creating spaces that are welcoming and inclusive and environmentally designed for a changing world. I moved to Seattle a few weeks ago and am looking to hire a team of personal care assistants! I have SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) and use a powerchair to get around. I need assistance with daily activities such as getting in and out of bed, getting ready for the day, meal prep, showering and some light housekeeping.

No prior experience needed but those with experience will be given priority consideration. This job does count as direct service hours for nursing and related majors. Each shift will last about an hour but can be flexible depending on schedules!

By hiring PCAs (personal care assistants) I can continue to live independently and pursue my masters degree. This job is critical to my ability to be here. With that being said, this job is also fun! Depending on your shift, we may cook or travel to various locations. I also have a service dog who loves to meet new friends!

If you are interested in or would like more information, please email me at aohare@uw.edu
