Seeking care for my mother in her 90s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 7+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, grouchy. Sadly my mother is Very depressed and fearful. Easily confused and ask lots of questions very talkative and repeats herself. Low mobility and suffers from severe spinal stenosis. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong, fond of pets. Dependable, observant and punctual. Easy to communicate with and willing to tell me of any changes or needs my mother may need. Very Patient and loving, caring personality. Treat my mother like they would want to be cared for as a senior. My Mother is very anxious, depressed and demented. She loves to enjoy her garden spending time outside. She enjoys watching TV and her Soap Operas. She doesn't do much now because of pain and depression. BUT I believe with the right care provider she could live a more happier and fulfilling life. She enjoys plants, flowers gardening. Can be extremely difficult to get along with. Can be very loud, screams demands and curses on occasion when frustrated. Has a sweet small dog that she adores and overfeeds. Doesn't like bathing anymore for fear of falling and going into hospital/senior facility. Is completely house bound.
