Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, independent. She is in the beginning stages of dementia. She is. Type 1 diabetic. She currently lives with my dad who is her primary caretaker. They are having a hard time managing her medications. If managed, she would be outgoing and a busy bee but with the current situation, she is spending a lot of her days in bed. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong, fond of pets. Someone who is patient and kind and treats my mom like family. She would need to do some light meal prep and be willing to administer her insulin shots and help insure she is getting her correct meds and eating the right diet for an insulin dependent diabetic. Mom still cleans her house and works outside on days she is feeling well. We would like to see her have more quality of life.
