Hands-on care needed for our mom in her 80s. Help w/ mobility to prevent falls is the most important; but also she needs help w/ medication, meal prep, bathing, dressing, other daily activities, & housekeeping. She's a little hesitant & weak with transfers; needs mild to moderate hands-on assistance (need experience in proper technique, to prevent falls, though she is not heavy, 115-120 lbs). You must walk with her every step, w/ a hand on her arm or back; she uses walker. Other duties include/not limited to toileting & personal cleaning for occasional incontinence. She's a little forgetful, needs some reminders/prompts. About Mom: She's a retired public health RN and spent her life helping others. Nonsmokers only, need long term/stable person w/ excellent health habits.
