Seeking care for myself in my 40s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. A little more about myself: I can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant, outgoing. I try to do things on my own if I can but need help staying focused. I have Progressive MS and as I become more disabled, it occurs to me I need help every day. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, fond of pets. My ideal caregiver is a problem-solver who can find the right tool for the task. I'm looking for someone organized and self-motivated. I love all animals- especially my pets. We have two cats and a dog. Our old (15yo) black cat is my best friend and the boss of the house.
I have four stepchildren and adore them. Their schedules overwhelm me. It is hard to miss their events because I'm sick.
I have good and bad days. I try not to overdo it but since decline started in my late 30s, l remember taking on the world and having an executive career.
