Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, reserved. She has dementia and has short term memory problems. I'm looking for someone who is patient, fond of pets. Caregiver that is very patient and able to hear the same story several times in short time frame, able to do easy meal prep (dinner) and snacks and provide companionship. She loves to read. When she does turn the tv on, she channel surfs, then will turn off the tv abruptly, also she will mute the tv unexpectedly, while she reads her books. She enjoys tea and cookies in the afternoon between lunch and dinner about 3 p.m. or so. Her appetite is not good at all, she eats very little.
