Thanks for your interest in the job, I am in need of the services of an Experienced senior caregiver for sick elders. I hope I can depend on your work and experiences ? Hence, I would want to know your schedules if you will be available to be with my mom (Margaret). She is 77 year old lady with all faculties, who is living with Cerebral Palsy, suffered a stroke two years ago.

I grew up in your city but reside in Hartford CT because of the company i work for.. I do come to see mom twice in three months, mom came visiting and she has been here for about 4 months now but she wants to come back because there\'s no one at home presently and she needs to keep the house. So I decided to employ you so that you can monitor her well being while she will be over there. This is going to be a full time position, Mon- Fri, 9am to 4pm, but if you are not available in any of these days, we can work something out. I\'d like to know your city, state and zip code to see if you live close to her because of the distance, mom lives at 9230 Marsden St, Philadelphia, PA 19114.

Also I will like to put to your notice that your duties will be preparing and making her meals, cleaning and laundry. She is not a COPD patient and NOT on oxygen. She is mobile with the help of a wheelchair, but is very diminished moving alone. She is kind and appreciative and a very sweet and easy going person. She is quiet and withdrawn, but able to communicate beautifully. I am looking for someone who would take good care of my mom without regrets.

I\'d let you know the exact time that you\'ll be starting as soon as I hear from you with your charges, availability and the hours in which you\'d prefer to work.


1. Prioritize tasks, multi-tasking and detail oriented.

2. Good interpersonal skills

3. Exhibit a service orientation towards everyone

4. Must have the ability to demonstrate solid judgment about patient care

5. Must also demonstrate a sense of understanding and urgency for priorities


Assist with care, meal preparation, giving her medications, light housekeeping, dressing & grooming, laundry & linens cleanings.

I am a very busy person and I don\'t really have time for phone calls, just leave an email if you have any questions and I\'ll answer as soon as possible.

Hope to read from you soon.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
