Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, independent. She is still grieving the loss of my dad 6 years ago. She has beginning stages of dementia. She insists that she does not have either issues. She has many "plans" to go on with her life but never does. She has pancreatitis and refuses to quit drinking wine but tells everyone she stooped drinking months ago. She has a bad habit of abusing over the counter drugs to try and stop her belly from hurting. The only reason it hurts is because she is drinking and is NOT supposed to with pancreatitis. Last year she almost died because of these bad lifestyle choices. She has been in an independent living facility for 5 months but insists on moving back to her home. The only way we are comfortable with this is for her to have a Care Giver/ Companion. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong, fond of pets. Patient, strong, firm... prayerful and kind.
