About who needs care: My mother is 86 and frail. She is bright quiet and friendly. She has some memory challenges but is usually quite capable once reminded. She has few interests but loves word searches and television. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy are the highlights of her day. She manages her own bathrooming needs most of the time. She needs a little assistance with showering to get fully clean. She needs encouragement to remember to eat and to eat some healthy choices every day.
About the care needs: A caregiver should be cheerful and willing to take leadership in conversations particularly at first. My mother is very passive and needs encouragement to engage with life.

Preference for a caregiver who is female.
