Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, feeding, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant, reserved. My mother has scleroderma, an auto immune disorder. She has been approved for palliative care. Up until this point, my father was able to care for her, however, he recently had knee replacement surgery and does not have the mobility. I realize that my mom is in the end phase of her illness, but she is still eating and can walk around a little. We also have an oxygen machine in the house which she will use 2 to 4 times a day. I'm looking for someone who is patient. I just need this person to be kind. My mom will have conversations, but she's kind of quiet. I think she would enjoy someone who will also engage her in conversation. My mom is hard of hearing at this point, but she does have hearing aids. My mom has some gastrointestinal complications due to her illness. She will definitely need help toileting. She also speaks Spanish and enjoys talking in her native language when possible. Even though a bilingual caregiver is not a requirement, she would probably enjoy that.
