Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, lethargic. Epilepsy and dementia patient. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. Her memory is diminishing and we have the same conversations several times a day. She recently had a epileptic seizure, fell and broke her shoulder. It has been surgically repaired and is healing well.
Her doctors have recommended constant care due to being unable to drive because she gets lost, unable to cook because she forgets and leaves the appliances on or forgets something is cooking and it burns, she forgets to take meds or takes them more than once.
