Hands-on Care Needed For My Mother In Marlborough

Part Time
About who needs care: My mother just lost her husband (my dad) who was her main caretaker. For the last 20 years she had him do everything from cook meals to getting her dressed/showered to taking her out to appointments to being her companion. For the last 20 years she's lived her life void of any hobbies or interests outside of watching old movies on tv. I think she's been depressed for a long time but now probably even more so. She likes to isolate herself and often refuses any kind of professional help. But she does allow a nurse and aids from the assisted living facility she lives in to visit her regularly. The problem is that they are never the same person so she doesn't really connect with them. And she can't really talk with them either. I'm hoping to find someone who she can do this with. A familiar face who is a companion who can also help care for her. Someone who can help take her to appointments as well since I'm not always available to do that. About the care needs: Someone who is very patient and has a kind demeanor. A good listener and can be encouraging (not pushy) for her when she may need it. Someone who can help her with her grief and depression and maybe even awaken her old hobbies of painting and socializing (she used to be so outgoing). She can't see out of one eye so that is a challenge and she is slow moving as well as virtually sedentary except for getting up to go to the bathroom and get something to eat/drink. The facility does provide meals however she complains that she doesn't like some of the food and also that she can't chew very well currently (she will be undergoing oral surgery soon and then will need new dentures) Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing. Preference for a caregiver who is female.
