About who needs care: my Mom has Alzheimers... she is still quite functional physically, but not there mentally, forgetting everything including what she ate 2 min ago. Hallucinations are getting worse, thinking people are trapped in the cars, stuffed animals come alive... she forgets to put shampoo on her hair so we would need increasing physical care. she can't regulate the shower water by herself. my parents have a very large basement that someone could live in, or stay overnight 5 days/week. private huge bathroom. if the person lives there, would this help towards cost? my Dad lives there and is fully functional and active, he is 80 years old. He needs help though. He is really struggling mentally. Please help!
About the care needs: young to mid-age woman, someone who is patient and understands memory care. someone who can keep my Mom busy with some simple hobbies, a walk, or drive to Panera to get a pastry, little day trips to give my Dad a break. at this point, not a lot of physical care, just assistance shampooing, making sure she is safe and does not wander. they can either live in (?) or come several days per week. she wanders and we need help with locks on the doors too so she can't go outside by herself.
Services needed include: companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
