Seeking care for my mother in her 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, 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 lethargic, pleasant. My mother can get in/out of the bed, walk to restroom wipe herself from the front only, change her pull-up will need complete assistance with BM wiping, she can give herself insulin, walk to the living room, get her insulin out the refrigerator, she will need someone to make the insulin, slight reminders of things ( she had brain surgery and suffers from short term memory loss occasionally) she will also need her food prepared and placed on her table. She will do what's required of the care provider but will also let the care provider do everything if the care provider choices too. She needs help in/out the shower with her shower bench, she can wash herself from the front while in the shower and the care provider will need to do the back completely, lotion her from the back, and but her socks on before getting out. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm. She would be nice, patient, funny, friendly, firm when needed, she would care for my mother as if it was one of her family members. My mom enjoys taking, laughing, watching Tv, she needs minimum assistance for self but I do everything around the house, clean, wash, change her sheets, wipe her after a BM and help with showers daily.. I need her caregiver to be clean, can cook a little and happy.
