About who needs care: At almost 96, my mom is being cared for by my father, in their home. She has become very weak and needs more strength for transfers, toiletings, showers, and dressing. We are looking for someone to stay from 6 p.m. to 9:30 or 10 am, to help with her mobility issues. No diagnosed dementia, but age-related confusion, often varying in degrees.
About the care needs: Transfer and lift skills required. Someone with a gentle touch and patience. She is slow and moving her can be painful for her. My parents love people and would enjoy some conversation, but would not enjoy constant chatter. Both have difficulty hearing, even with hearing aides.
Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
