Seeking care for myself in my 50s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about myself: I can be energetic, anxious, outgoing, reserved, independent. Life events & hormone changes led to major depression that got me behind on household, financial & organizational tasks. I just want to catch up & cross things off my list so that I can move forward. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, fond of pets, outdoorsy. Need companion to keep me on track, listen & push when I get frustrated with my tasks. Sometimes keep me company while cooking. Lend an extra set of hands for cleaning/organizing projects. I have one dog that does not need to interact with caregiver unless they want to. Minor errands might be dropping off mail to postbox or donations to charity. Familiarity with 12-step programs (AlAnon or CODA) would be a bonus.
I am a native English speaker interested in learning conversational Spanish.
I don't tolerate strong artificial smells or chemicals well.
Generally looking for 3-4 hours, 2-3 days per week for a few months - flexible on days & times.
