Seeking care for my mother in her 90's. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, outgoing, independent. Mom is 92 and happy. She lives alone since my dad passed we had 6 ladies working 9 to 9 every day. They are very sweet and responsible but now we are starting Medicaid, 4 of them are leaving. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, outdoorsy. They should be able to prepare light meals, follow her prescription schedule and document the daily activities. Help with showering and washing her hair, make sure she drinks lots of fluids, help her walking with her cane, dressing and getting ready for bed. Light cleaning. She will be working for Agency in Albany for $13 per hour.
Three shifts weekdays and two shifts on weekends. No smokers! My mom has had a wonderful life and loves showing her many photos. She will spend as much time as weather allows on her outside deck. During the fall and winter and cool days she will sit and watch television all day.
We like her to walk every day outside if possible, inside on cold days.
