Seeking hands-on care near Springfield for my mother in her 60s, she has end stage COPD and she just started at home hospice. She is now in the "bed to chair" phase of her illness so she isn't capable of her day to day tasks. What we are looking for is help with bathing (rarely, I usually do this part, unless im overly busy), brush her hair daily. We're looking for some help preparing meals, we try to prep over a week of meals, so being a great cook would be ideal. We certainly need a caring and compassionate companion who is willing to listen to her chat and just be good company. Other duties would include, occasional errands, light cleaning, dressing, making her coffee and water, ect.
We would prefer a spanish speaker, as the grandkids and their father speak spanish/English and we are trying to encourage their culture and language.
