Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 7+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be energetic, anxious, pleasant, grouchy, outgoing, reserved, independent. My mother is a very spunky woman that loves company, going to the movies, walking and window shopping. She loves the library and going to church. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong, fond of pets, outdoorsy, bilingual. I would like for the person to be outgoing, open minded, honest, trustworthy, compassionate, understanding, willing to go the extra mile to make sure that my mom is well taken care of. My mom enjoys walking but now she needs assistance with doing so now. My schedule is every other Monday & Fridays I have groups from 930am-130 p.m. Mom's dialysis is every Tues , Thur, and sat from 1045am-230 p.m. and she usually takes METRO ACCESS to and from there and also to her doctor's appointments. My mom doesn't eat mushrooms and has an allergy to IODINE & TYLENOL. So, helping her outside to walk with her cane at a SLOW pace would be GREAT! I definitely need help when it comes to getting her to and from dialysis on her days. Helping us out would be greatly appreciated.
