Part-time assistant needed for busy family in Newton

Short story: need someone 15 hrs/week, on 3 different days, for light meal prep, laundry, cleaning, organizing

Long story:
Me (the employer): David, a full-time systems developer, Cal-Berkeley grad with cerebral palsy who lives with my wife and elementary school-aged son in a 1600 sq ft house in West Newton. I use a power wheelchair, and perform my own self-care except for clipping my nails.

The basics: $15+/hour, 15 hours a week on 3 days spaced throughout the week, possibly including one weekend day. Hours and days somewhat flexible, but some evenings are a must. Paid by direct deposit every 2 weeks, W-2 position. Must have own social security number and be authorized to work in the US (can complete I-9 form).

Duties include: light meal preparation (coffee, sandwiches, occasionally pasta), assistance with wardrobe planning (lay out clothes for the next few days that are appropriate for the weather forecast), wheelchair cushion cleaning, laundry, general housekeeping, assist me with paperwork as needed

Starts immediately, local students welcome to apply, year-round position.

We need you to be:
- Dependable/reliable-- this role is key to the healthy functioning of my family
- Detail-oriented
- Proactive- take the initiative to see what needs to be done and do it
- Able to multitask-- put laundry in, start dishwasher, go clean something, etc...
- Good team player, with good interpersonal boundaries
- Have a sense of humor!

Off street parking, prefer someone who commutes under their own power and is not tied to public transportation schedules, but not a dealbreaker. Also close to commuter rail and express bus. Green line is about 30 min walk.

Please tell me a little bit about yourself and why this opportunity interests you.
