Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. This is actually for both my mother and father. Mother has brain cancer(already had surgery and treatment, currently doing pretty well) father has had Parkinson's for decades. Mobile but limited. Mother likes to be out and about. Father likes to stay at home. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. Must be pleasant, compassionate and patient. Looking for someone to keep company, help with house tasks and taking to appointments ( neither really drive), meals, dressing, bathing, etc. They have an extra bedroom and would be possibly open to live in help. Mother is very involved in the church and would like to stay engaged but would need help getting to those. She also enjoys shopping (groceries and gifts) and playing Scrabble. She usually sleeps in until around 10-11 a.m.
My dad likes to do things around the house but would need help with organizing things and working on inventory and possibly listing some of his items for sale or some other venue.
