Seeking care for my mother in her 50s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, independent. She has had Parkinson's disease for 10+ years and is beginning to have issues with her independence as well as mental health. She would also greatly benefit from a companion. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. My mom can be extremely stubborn, so someone who is very kind and patient would be ideal. My mom greatly values her independence to the point where she often insists that she is able to do things that she is unable to do. She also really enjoys being able to get out of the house often when she is able. She is very particular in the way she likes things done, so listening to her is important. Her biggest issues are that she is a fall risk and has a complex medication schedule. Also reminders to eat/help with meals would much appreciated.
