Seeking care for my mother in her 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant. My mother has bone cancer and is on hospice. She is alert, but has lost almost all mobility. She needs someone who can assist with meal prep, giving medicine, hygiene, throughout
the home health aides that come in with hospice three times a week for a bath so you would be able to assist with that and just help her stay clean and toilet the rest of the days. We are looking for someone to live with her for $200 a day. We are unsure how long of an assignment this will be, but it could last a few months. She can be left unsupervised for a few hours at a time if set up and I'd be happy to schedule relief or provide relief for you. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, fond of pets. We would like them to not mind staying in the one bedroom and my mom is out in the living room in her chair. Mom doesn't need things overnight usually, but it is good to have someone available if needed. My mother stays indoors in her recliner a huge percentage of the time. She has a catheter because getting up and down is very painful, so she uses the bedside toilet when necessary. She is a very devoted and loves to study and share her faith. She is a very kind and pleasant woman, but still likes to be in charge of her care as much as possible because though she's lost mobility she is still very lucid.
