Lightbulb Part-Time Jobs for Disabled - June 17, 2011, 09:40 AM

This is a very serious thread so PLEASE do not make fun, shit on, or joke around. I would very much appreciate this. Thank you.

I have a family member with a disability. They were just diagnosed with dementia (both short and long term memory loss) (Dementia - PubMed Health) and is only 61 yrs old. They went to college and worked in food sales for 20 yrs. 15 yrs ago they got sick and have severe depression and paranoia episodes. These jobs cannot be stressful and need to try and be fulfilling. They are not computer literate (these jobs can't require any technical skills) (or use of computers). This person is a male.




A few jobs I've thought of:
  1. Grocery Bagger / Fetching Carriages
  2. Walmart Greeter
  3. Lot associate - assist customers by loading their vehicles and maintaining a pleasant and clean store entrance.
  4. Dog walker
  5. Light cleaning/maintenance
  6. Something with the church (like volunteer work)
Eventually he will not be able to drive so the part-time work cannot involve driving (pizza delivery, etc.). He just had to tell his boss about his new diagnosis and had to resign (was driving a minivan for school system). Right now he is still helping a friend with his landscaping business and recording stats for a high school basketball team.

Can you .netters think of anything else that might fit this bill? If you need any more details please let me know.

Thanks again for keeping this thread respectful. I really do appreciate it.

well depending on how bad the memory loss is this might be bad. they might get lost if working or short term are being affected significantly.

Hey folks, thanks for replying. He lives in central ma so not sure if that matters.

We were discussing possible issues with walking dogs so there are some items that need to be considered.
