Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, grouchy, reserved, independent. She has diabetes and kidney disease. We are told that she will need 24/7 care with help walking, standing, etc.. She becomes weak after dialysis and sometimes loses her balance when getting up. She will have home therapy so hopefully her condition will get better. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong. Someone who won't get offended if my mom is quiet (or sometimes might sound rude), will have patience, and sometime who will want to start conversations, and will watch TV with my mom, and encourage her to do small sit down activities (card games, board games, crafts, etc)My mom likes to watch lifetime movies, is Christian and likes to watch Christian shows on TV, likes to go for rides in the car, through the woods, and likes to go out to lunch once in awhile. She also likes to go to the beach and restaurants near the water.
