Seeking care for my mother in her 80's. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, transportation. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience, support for memory care. 84 with a little dementia. She refuses to allow me, her daughter, to help her, take her to appts, etc. I need someone to take to doctor appts, hair dresser, etc. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong. Sweet spirited, yet firm. One who enjoys being a companion & who will show mother the attention, and provide the companionship she needs. My mother rarely goes out of the house. I'm looking for someone who will help initiate necessary daily changes, with the goal of getting her accustomed to doing things again that she refuses to do now. She has a strong independent streak, but is unable to do for herself like she once did.
