Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, reserved. My mother has end stage congestive heart failure. She's on 2 liters of O2 continuous. She lives in her home currently just getting back from a stay in a nursing home. My mother wants to remain in her home as long as possible so my sister and I want to find an affordable agency that will provide the care my Mother needs. She can walk to the bathroom with assistance but that's all. Her Dr. has ordered medical supplies such as bed, air mattress, bedside table, etc. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, strong. Someone who has had experience with older patients. My Mother's body is deteriorating but she has a keen mind. She's a retired R. N. she was very independent before this illness took over. The people that take care of her have to have patience and have empathy and compassion. Above all we need people that are honest and are punctual and have integrity. My mother mostly watches T. V. She likes light conversation but she gets tired easily.
