We are looking for someone with experience caring for seniors. Female caregiver preferred. Patient is diabetic and arthritic, with limited mobility (wheelchair).
Services needed include assisting with bathing, toileting, dressing, mobility assistance, medication management, meal preparation (including feeding the dog), light housekeeping, laundry, companionship, and related duties.
A little more about the position: Patient can be reserved until she gets to know new people, and may refuse some testing. TV news is on all day (with occasional game shows, shopping, and animal shows) and she is not interested in other activities. There is a dog in the home that will take time to get used to a new caregiver. Also she will expect meals to include college student grandson living in the home.
