Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, medication prompting, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, reserved. My mother was diagnosed with dementia/early onset Alzheimer's in 2018. She used to be very social and out going but now is reserved and can be anxious. She is for the most part good natured but gets very confused often. She does better when she is busy and keeps active. She likes to read and do sudoku puzzles-not any other hobbies. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. I envision our ideal caretaker to be patient and full of energy and creative ideas to keep my mom busy. Also looking for someone with dementia and memory care experience. My mom no longer drives-this has led to her losing contact and interaction with her friends. ... and she misses this! A companion or someone that can get her to and from events would be awesome.
