Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, mobility assistance, helping with using the bathroom after surgery, helping manage surgical recovery from an invasive knee surgery. My mom has severe arthritis in all of her joints, has extremely limited mobility, and is in chronic pain. She will be recovering from surgery that will require her leg to stay completely straight, and she won't be able to bear any weight on that leg for three months. She is also not able to hold her weight on her other leg. So she will need a lot of help just figuring out how to use the bathroom, stay clean, and get dressed. My dad handles meals and housework, but might need a little help sometimes. My mom is pleasant, kind, and intelligent. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, and can help her deal safely with her issues.
