Seeking care for my grandmother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, help staying physically active, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 7+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandmother: she can be energetic, anxious, lethargic, pleasant, grouchy. Yes, grandma can be all these things. It's the anxiety that causes some excess energy. Grouchy from meds causing lethargy, but when you get to know her, she truly is a pleasant woman. She has dementia from a TBI about 12 years ago. She has been through a horrific year. Unfortunately she is in a nursing home and there is absolutely not I can do to get her out. I need someone to go to check on her and spend an hour or so with her. Once a week to get an ice cream. Check for unexplained bruises or weight loss, shave her whiskers, brush her hair, instruct her to brush her teeth. All the little things the aides just don't have time to do. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong.
