We are seeking fairly regular support for my mother and father who are ~70 years of age. My mother suffers from depression, and could really use a companion to nudge her to get up and be more active, and to help manage appointments and medications.
My father has some minor balance and mood issues from Parkinson's disease. He is quite independent (and prefers to be that way), but they both could benefit from:
- occasional cooking
- light cleaning/organization around the home
- assistance with executive functions (i. e. keeping up with appointments, bills, deadlines)
- occasional outings/day trips
- bathing and dressing (mom)
My sister and I both live within an hour range, and would be available if/when needed. We are hoping to find a caregiver that feels more like a friend or family member.
