Seeking care for my wife in her 80s. Services needed: mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. Alzheimer's, anxious when spouse is not present, repeats same questions over and over, cannot identify when she had to go to bathroom, she insists on trying to get up and has fallen many times, must have constant supervision, currently only minimal weight bearing, in wheelchair, needs assistance dressing, transport from chair to w/c to toilet to chair to bed. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, fond of pets. She is not always able to hold a conversation, she doesn't typically initiate conversation. She asks questions and sometimes answer questions but usually doesn't remember personal or family information. She enjoys having nails done sometimes. She is strong willed. She has a lap dog toy poodle mix that she clings to for comfort. You have to monitor her grip on the dog. You have to establish regular intervals to take her to bathroom even if she says no.
