Companion Care Needed For My Mother In Arlington

Full Time $16 – 24/hr Starts 06/10 Arlington, VA
About who needs care: Asthma and uses a nebulizing machine daily 3+ times. Shortness of breath. Diminished eyesight balance issues. Knee pain. Would like someone few hours each morning to help get day going. Some companionship in the morning. To share coffee and breakfast get dressed help to make her bed maybe throw in a load of laundry. Help her put on compression socks. Then take a walk around the neighborhood- as much as she can tolerate- few blocks. The incapacitation has been sudden and she can get rather upset about it.. For most of her life was very active and until about 6 wks. ago walked around 2 miles a day and exercised several times a week at a gym. Now only a few blocks. Definitely need someone who can deal with the emotional disappointment that comes with that sort of sudden decline. She has lots of Doctor appointments now as we are trying to see if she can be stabilized somehow... We the daughters (2 live locally 3 out of town) do not have the time to look after her as much as she needs... About the care needs: No smoking/drinking please. Someone who can help with her meds (put them in her pill boxes). Light housekeeping to help keep things tidy. Open to helping with some cooking. My Mom is a great cook but needs help now to do it. Open to listening if my Mom wants to talk... But she can also be challenging at times and the caregiver needs to be able to stay neutral on task and not take things personally.. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
