About who needs care: My Mom has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's. My brother lives half a block away but would like someone there on a regular basis. The day would be pretty easy, a lot of free time and live-in can hold another job. She basically needs someone home when she showers, occasional food prep, disbursement of meds, companionship, occasional outings. We are thinking about 20 hours a week. She enjoys gardening, painting, crafts, cooking and shopping.
About the care needs: Needs to know how to take blood pressure, pulse rate etc...
Would like someone who is intelligent, not easily manipulated, friendly, calm positive disposition with good communication.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
