Seeking care for my grandmother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. A little more about my grandmother: she can be anxious, pleasant, outgoing. My grandmother needs companionship and gentle but firm reminders to complete her routine daily. She had a stroke a year and a half ago that completely changed her life. Prior to her stroke she was extremely independent and capable of driving and caring for herself. Since the stroke she has declined mentally, emotionally, and physically. She is showing signs of dementia and we feel she would greatly benefit from a scheduled routine and the presence of a caregiver. She is smart, generous, and loves to complete tasks like games! I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong. The right person for us is reliable, responsible, patient, and energetic. We need someone who understands that at this season in my grandmother s life she deserves to be valued, respected, and loved but she also needs guidance and support to keep her active.
We need someone who can drive, who can lift 50lbs+, and is willing to create a routine and manage her home.
