Seeking care for my mother in her 60s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be energetic, anxious, pleasant, outgoing, independent. My mother is typically upbeat, fun, social and independent. Neurologists are currently trying to find out what is going on with her. She has aphasia and memory loss all of a sudden. She went from driving anywhere and everywhere and cooking every day to not being able to cook or drive overnight. She's only 66 and this is not who she is at all. We are hoping doctors will find the cause and be able to treat this. She does well with walking and performing her own personal care but needs supervision and some guidance at times. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, fond of pets, bilingual. Someone who will not do everything for my mom only what she cannot do for now like cooking, driving or cleaning. Someone caring, nice and respectful who has patience dealing with patients who struggle with memory and communication. My mother needs someone who will make her smile from time to time. Whatever she's going thru has caused her to worry so much. She's frightened. She loves her two granddaughters and she loves to talk about them. She enjoys being involved in their activities.
