Seeking care for my grandmother in her 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandmother: she can be grouchy, reserved, independent. She likes to do things on her own, it's hard for her to accept help but she needs it. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, fond of pets, bilingual. My grandma likes to talk, she prefers someone who speaks Spanish but completely fine if not!! She is a fall risk so someone who can help her stand and walk is major. Someone who will not back down and will stand their ground, she doesn't always eat but she needs to. She also has a Chihuahua who needs to be fed so someone who is OK with a tiny dog. My grandma enjoys talking about her life and her family. She needs help cleaning her home, caring for her small dog, getting dressed, standing, taking her medication and going to the bathroom. She might also need transportation to her doctor appointments and needs someone who can either cook her a meal or order her takeout. We'd like someone who can do some light housecleaning (dishes, sanitizing, mopping) and someone who can go to the grocery store for her (trips are 10 or less items) and someone who can sometimes take her to appointments. Tasks may change as her health improves/declines.
