Seeking care for my mother in her 70's. Services needed: bathing / dressing, help staying physically active. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant. My Mom walks with assistance walker and has knee problem in one knee, walks very slowly. Needs someone primarily to help her shower and possibly to do walking exercise inside the house and in front of the house. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm. My mother weighs 250 pounds and is 5'4, caregiver needs to be strong enough to help steady Mom and assist her in lifting off toilet if necessary. My brother and father live with her and I live nearby but work full time so can not do this for her and this is why we prefer a female caregiver. So there are always people around to assist the caregiver in whatever she may need. Someone who is gentle is preferred esp to help her wash her hair.
