Support Person & Caretaker for Interesting 96 year-old Professor of Peace Studies

On a beautiful idyllic property with a family whose values include caring and kindness, learning and creating, organization and responsibility, communication and cooperation, safety and good design of each day….we are looking for Caregivers for a 96-year-old Professor of International Law and Humanities. He has been living with his oldest daughter and grandson on an idyllic property in Owings Mills with deer, birds, turtles, frogs, animals of all kinds for over five years. We are looking for someone who has good experience with advocating and caretaking for older people over 70, either in a professional setting or within your own family. Saul is intelligent, easy-going (most of the time!), and is in great physical shape, due to the great care and routine he has been receiving already with his daughter.

Daily duties will include preparing and serving 3 meals; ensuring he takes his medications and vitamins; helping him with getting on his Zoom/Google Meet sessions (with captions) for Physical Therapy, family conversations, and classes that he is involved with both at Johns Hopkins University and Rutgers University (where he still teaches 1 semester a year); walking with him twice a day for 20 minutes; administrative duties such as helping out sending out bills and cards; cleaning the living, bedroom and bathroom areas; assisting with tasks around the property when needed; taking out trash and recycling; and picking up the mail. Saul values his independence and is quite amazing and yet he needs to be attended to in regards to his safety during the day when he is going upstairs or taking a shower (which he does not need assistance with as of yet). 

Due to the Pandemic, it is important that measures be taken to ensure that Dad and the caregiver are super safe. With all of our caretakers this has been a great value for them and us, as if we are in a quarantine bubble together. This includes washing hands frequently, use of alcohol wipes, wearing masks (required), wearing gloves (when necessary), not going out to stores unless agreed to, using good precautions and common sense in your own lives when you are away from the property, primarily staying at home. This can be discussed in further detail upon interviewing. We will be giving preference to people who have been and are mostly or fully staying-at-home and can assure us of not being exposed to coronavirus.

The day will be from 8am to 9pm, and will include some down time in which caregivers can take walks in the park, sit outside, read, do crafts, work on their own computer, take an afternoon nap, make phone calls. Generally, Saul is up from somewhere between (sometimes a little bit earlier) 8:00am and 8:30am to 9pm (sometimes a little bit later).

Pay is $185 per day, $240 for a 24 hour shift (spending the night). Currently, we are looking for people who are available to work 3 days/nights a week (Sometime between Thursday and Monday AM). Must have reliable car transportation. This position has opportunities for pay increases with 3 month reviews and for a minimum commitment of 6 months (ideally 12 months). We are also looking for people who would be willing to work nights only shifts beginning at $65 from 8:30pm - 8:30am.

The ideal candidate would:

  • Love helping people
  • Enjoy and respect elders
  • Be living in a stay-at-home way with excellent precautions being taken
  • Love animals
  • Like being active
  • Enjoy nature
  • Like to prepare and cook food 
  • Have experience working with elders professionally or personally
  • Have some knowledge of healthy and organic foods
  • Be able to work on own
  • Enjoy communicating with family

Please submit your resumes to melmendlovitz@hotmail.com. Professional and personal references welcome. You will only hear back if an interview is requested and we thank you in advance for your efforts.
