About the job

About who needs care: My mom is on Hospice - so they come in and check on her throughout the week. A Hospice Aide helps her with bathing 3x/week. She has cancer and is on oxygen. She uses a walker so she needs someone to walk alongside her from the Livingroom (where she sits throughout the day) to the bathroom that is in her bedroom) so that she doesn't fall. Sometimes her legs are weak and she needs to take breaks to do this walk. She would need light meals prepared and her meds given to her. Typically she likes to watch game shows and talk to friends and family on the phone. She sleeps on and off throughout the day. About the care needs: Mom mom is not terribly chatty. She would want someone friendly but not overly talkative. The person would need to be strong enough to lift my mom if she were to become weak while walking and collapse . My mom weighs 140lbs. Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance. Preference for a caregiver who is female.
