Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, independent. Suffered fractured vertebrae and is being discharged from rehab earlier than expected; need support until healed. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm. Mom has been through a lot in the last year. Diagnosed with breast cancer Dec 2019 and has gone through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. She has developed neuropathy in her fingers and toes making it harder to accomplish tasks. Then, she fell and fractured her back. We are shocked to find out the insurance company is discharging her before she can fully take care of herself. Before this happened, this 84-year-old drove herself to the grocery store and managed her own life. She is fiercely independent but will need help for a bit to get back to handling her own life.
Temporarily will need support with mobility, cooking, medicine management, etc.
