About who needs care: My mother has Parkonson's. She has balance issues and light sensitivity (her eyes close).
She lives alone in a small apartment, and cooks and cleans And cares for herself. I just wish there could've someone there on a regular basis to ease the burden. I am there several times a week, as is her sister.
About the care needs: My mom is French, she likes to cook and she used to LOVE to paint and sculpt and make dolls and candles.
She needs more exercise and more time walking. She also needs to stretch everyday, but I don't think she does it regularly.
I would love the person to be a good companion. My mother was the most fun woman, but she has a lot of pain and has lived alone for a while. I wish for her to have someone she trusts and feels at home with.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
