Seeking care for my mother in her 80. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant. My mother is 85 years old and suffers from Alzheimer's and progressive aphasia. She has suffered a mild stroke and has limited use of her right side ( leg and arm) extremely easy going and very happy. She laughs at everything and is enjoys watching family feud, and game shows. She speaks primarily Croatian but does understand English and will repeat back in English. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, bilingual. We are looking for a caregiver who is patient, kind and can take great care of my mom. Looking for someone who has some experience, someone strong, and someone who would be ready to jump on board and help maintain a healthy routine. Ideally we are looking for someone 5/6 days a week - willing to split days if necessary.
Looking for someone to help get her up and out of bed, help her eat breakfast. Someone who can help her with basic exercises and someone who can take her out for a walk in her wheel chair for some fresh air. Someone who can be her companion and play memory games with her.
Bilingual in Croatian or any Slovak language would be helpful but also not necessary. Like stated my mom will repeat and understand English, but speaks and understands Croatian! My mother is very friendly and a very happy woman. She loves music/ old tv shows/ and the game show network!
