does this ad for a job sound suspicious?? opinions please ~?

i was on craigslist looking for a job and i came across this ad and i responded to it, im worried about the obvious inconsistencies

need a caregiver for my lovely sister, 25 year old wheelchair user to help him with his morning routine, Monday-Friday at 7 am. It's a pretty basic routine, involving compression garments, range of motion and transfer into the wheelchair. Occasional bed baths and hair washes also part of the routine. We pay $600 weekly and it should not take longer than 30-40 minutes to complete. Great for a WCC student who wants to pick up a regular part time job before class.

Respond via email with interest, qualifications and references. Thanks.

    I would be a bit worried! Maybe ask them to call you to discuss this job and you can then bring up any concerns you may have. Better bring things that are of concern up now than later on down the line. This should clear things up for you
