We are seeking someone with excellent communication skills and broad life experience to provide assistance, support and personal care for a vibrant professional female in her mid-fifties who is tetraplegic following a recent climbing accident.

There is no preference as to gender and we would value someone with a good character, flexibility and a willingness to engage.
