Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant. Suffers from spinal cord injury due to recent spine surgery. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. Available, has knowledge bowel and bladder care, knowledge of wound care, willing to motivate physical activity. My mother's spinal cord injury was recent caused by a surgical procedure. She is now a paraplegic and needs help getting in a routine and learning how to perform daily tasks on her own and just be by her side for support and cheer leader. Before surgery she was a fully functioning independent person. My sister and I have been trying to share duties but both of us have full time jobs and are unable to be there with her during the day or every evening. Our father is with her but is 78 and really does not know what to do to get her on track. She is a pleasant, kind, wonderful lady. She likes good conversation and is very family oriented. Her family means everything to her and we as a family feel the same way and are really looking for someone who is available and will treat her like a family member as well during this traumatic transition.
