Live-in assistant for a quadriplegic musician

Mike M - Brentwood, TN

Part-time | Contract | Internship

If you are soft-spoken, drug-free, and in your 20s or early 30s with a generally optimistic outlook on life and looking for meaningful part-time work, this may be right for you. My name is Mike. I like to work hard, laugh, listen to country music pretty loud sometimes, strive to a better person with each new day, wake up grateful for a new day.

I don't let anything stop me, nor do I blame my struggles on anyone, or view myself as an oppressed victim. I'm not a fan of moody death metal culture or angry hip-hop culture. The only hate in my heart is for raw onions. I'm not easily "triggered" or offended; and often poke fun at my disability- like Timmy on Southpark.

A shift is open for one or two weekdays per week in south Nashville. Shifts typically run from 7pm though 7pm the next day.

If you are somewhat like me but able-bodied, need a job, and potentially have the freedom to travel to a warm climate with me this winter, I'd like to meet you!

What makes a good candidate for this position?

-You are in search of a stable, long-term employment opportunity outside of an office/cubical type setting and are motivated to make a difference in the world.You don’t mind being away from home for part of the week and the idea of traveling appeals to you.

-You like to laugh and are able to find humor even in the challenging parts of life and are able to remain calm in stressful situations. also, you don't have a habit of drug use and are open to random drug tests...

Even if you have little or no experience, you can easily be trained on the day-to-day tasks if you are motivated and a good personality fit.

You’ll learn by doing as you assist Mike hands-on in his daily living tasks,‬ including bathing and hygiene, dressing, eating/drinking, transferring from bed/wheelchair/toilet, toileting (including daily suppositories and occasional enemas), driving, working out at the gym, light housekeeping and laundry.

If this position is right for you – and if you think you’re right for us, please send a note to explain why you want to work with Mike. Tell us about your background and experience and attach a current resume.‬ NOTE: We do not accept applications without a personal note.
