I received a text message from 6574647144 saying the following:
Good Morning I\'m interested in ur services for my mom (Margaret) as a caregiver through care.com and i need someone who can start immediately. This position is in Spokane. Kindly email me at john@suredoorsnaples.com and i will get back to you with details about the job. John

Once I emailed back for more information I got the following email:
Hope you\'re having a great sunday? 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 75 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 FL 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- Sat, 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.

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 She is quiet and withdrawn, but able to communicate beautifully.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.
