About who needs care: I use a walker around my apt. and short walks to the car and to a restaurant. Otherwise , I need to be transported with my wheelchair. Around my house, I read on my tablet, watch tv and have visitors or talk on the phone. If I go out, I like to shop or eat out in a restaurant. My apartment is small, a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. I would like to have my apartment cleaned, including running the sweeper and dusting. I have broken my hip and have had two surgeries on my back for fractured vertrabrae. I also have bronchial problems and have to be careful about being exposed to headcolds and other respiratory infections.
About the care needs: I would like to have someone who carries on a conversation, but also can be comfortable being quiet. Also someone who is interested in what is happening in the world. It would be nice if the person can cook, such as scrambled eggs, make soup or a meatloaf. I need someone to do laundry, light housekeeping and errands. I am thinking two to three hours a visit, depending on what is planned for that time.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
