Hi, Seeking kindhearted, compassionate, attentive caregiver to provide companionship and care for my mom, a sweet 82-year-old with MS. Her smile is infectious and her spirits are always high. Important: ** Must have own transportation ** Must be pet-friendly -- 1 small dog; cats. All friendly This is mostly a companionship position, but also to assist me in caring for my mom. *Applying lotion to skin; brushing hair. Help brushing teeth; my mom can generally brush her own teeth but caregiver would have to get the water, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. Depending on the day she may need help with the toothbrush *Light meal prep. Needs supervision while eating in case she can't reach for something. Occasional assistance while eating *Conversation, keeping my mom company and watching some of her favorite TV shows; who knows, maybe some that you'd even enjoy as well! *Family members will handle medication management, caregiver can dispense on a schedule that is already set up. She only takes 2-3 medications given about 3 times daily *Keeping my mom's area tidy; light housekeeping *We usually do the major food shopping but there might be a time in between when picking a few things up for my mom the local grocery store is needed; also prescriptions at a local pharmacy occasionally *Folding my mom's laundry and putting it away in her dresser (I do the laundry but assistance folding and putting it away is a big help). Assisting me putting a clean shirt on *My mom has a power wheelchair that I transfer her to for a change of position/scenery. On a nice day a stroll around the block in our private development or sitting out in the backyard or in the shade out by the pool would be something nice to do once in a while *Assisting me while I give my mom an occasional bed bath. For example handing me things like a washcloth, applying lotion afterwards *Assisting me changing bed linens That's all I can think of for now, but if this sounds good so far reach out and let's talk more. Also, there's some flexibility with the hours I listed and all 4 days don't need to be filled by the same person; if someone can't fulfill all of the days don't let that stop you from reaching out. Thanks for stopping by.
