About who needs care: Actually it is 2 Seniors my mom and dad 86 and 89. They are both are capable. Mom has the onset of memory issues. Both have mobility issues but get around okay with walkers and are able to live on own thus far. Mom lacking any motivation after years of raising children/grandchildren gardening sewing cooking reading letter writing:( Dad has a sharp mind great attitude loves his sports reads local papers daily and watches True Crime TV! He so does not want to loose his independence. He wants to keep them both at home! He has become the primary cook. Not good. 3 local children and spouses are primary care givers.
We need help when local children are unable to be there for security interaction meal prep. Mom needs weekly bathing. Dad does own his own but would love the extra comfort if someone was there if one of the children are not. They are good people kind pleasant faithful with a good sense of humor. Mom getting a negative side that is new but
she is so never mean or hateful. She does not have a filter at least when it comes to my cooking:)
Dad is a early riser usually reads 2 papers before mom rises. They prepare their own light breakfast. They read and watch TV and go on the internet for activity. May have a doctor's appointment or a visit from family or neighbor. Some days dad takes mom for a ride or they have lunch out with a family member. Dad prepares the meals now. If one of the children is not there some days it is cookies! Most activities are just housekeeping. Mom does laundry? Dad sweeps the floor. And then supper more TV snack and bed.
