Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, reserved. 82 years old. Diagnosed with Alzheimer's 2 hrs ago. Symptoms increasing. No short term memory. Still able to care for personal needs. No longer drives. Gets frustrated and agitated when she can't remember. Lives with adult son (52 yo) her entire life. He is mildly mentally impaired from birth. He recently acquired a home health aid for social interaction and works outside the house 20-24 hrs per week. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm. Woman with patience. My mother doesn't think she needs anyone to help care for her because she has my brother living with her. However due to his mental disability he does not have the skills necessary to deal with her as her memory continues to deteriorate. She has friends in the area and socializes with them about once per week but her initial action every day is to cancel any activity that has been planned claiming she has allergies and can't go out. She is very private and is struggling with the need for outside care.
