Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 3+ 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, lethargic, pleasant, reserved. She has dementia. She's good in the morning but gets worse in the afternoon. Right now she's having problems with her foot and circulation. She lost her husband last March. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, firm. Someone who is gentile. Friendly and who can keep her company but not talk her ear off. My mom is not sure she wants someone so will have to be eased into it. Patience because she will ask questions over and over. My mother has dementia. She knows all of us but she will forget things like appts, or what happened at the appt etc. She gets anxious and more forgetful in the afternoons. She's generally friendly but lonely. But she doesn't want someone hovering over her. Right now she can't do much walking because of an infection on the bottom of her foot. Usually I can take her to the grocery store and she will walk to the mail box 3 doors down.
