Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred.
A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, pleasant. Very easygoing. Due to blindness and Alzheimer's she can have anxiety. Loves to watch TV. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. Patient with mom and her storytelling, she used to be a great storyteller, but the Alzheimer's makes it difficult to understand what she is talking about. Mom is diabetic so she needs to eat accordingly. She is blind and unsteady walking, so she needs assistance walking and dressing. She needs encouragement to take her pills. She is incontinent and needs help with the bathroom. She likes to go outside to sit. Loves to watch children play.
Mom doesn't tolerate heat very well, but she is usually cold even in the summer.
