Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, outgoing, independent. I'm looking for someone who is chatty, strong. My mother is fiercely independent, but realizes if she's going to continue to live alone she's going to need someone who can check in on her, make sure she's taking her meds, eating properly and assist her with things she cannot do any longer like take out her trash. She's 3 1/2 hours away from the closet family members and we need some piece of mind and someone who is going to check up on her in the morning to get her day started and then again in the evening. Sometimes just a quick stop in "how are you doing? Do you need me to take care of anything for you?" is all she may need, but she still needs someone who can make sure she's not in need of anything with family being so far away.
