About who needs care: Hi! I am looking for someone to help my grandparents. My grandmother is 78, and my grandfather is 93. My grandmother has severe arthritis and can barely walk. My grandfather is almost entirely bed-ridden, mostly blind and deaf. He also has memory problems. He can bathe himself and feed himself, but someone has to prepare meals for him and give him his medicine. My grandmother was his caregiver, but her health has recently taken a turn herself. My mother works full-time, and I attend school , otherwise we would be doing this ourselves. It would be pretty easy work, such as preparing meals and medicine, picking up groceries, washing dishes, letting the dog out and feeding him, maybe light cleaning. Perhaps occasional doctor appointment transportation.
About the care needs: We're looking for someone who can do odd tasks here and there. It would only be once or twice a day for maybe an hour or so. This person is hopefully patient and kind, as my grandparents need someone of that. Also someone with a sense of humor because my grandparents love to laugh. You do not need any special qualifications, but elderly care in the past would be preferred. You also need a drivers license. We have a car you can use for transportation for them if need be.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
