Hands-on Care Needed For My Mother - My mother is recovering fro...

Part Time $25 – 50/hr Starts 03/28 Portland, OR
About who needs care: My mother is recovering from a severe case of sciatica (that put her in hospital) and is in pain, particularly in the morning. Manages it with tylenol and lidocaine patch. She is currently using a walker and has physical therapy she is supposed to do. Loves walking, water aerobics, tea and Tony Bennett. Recently returned home from hospital. My father is in very good health mentally and physically but it's too much for him. Need someone there in mornings so my father can do his activities. Ideal day structure is get up in morning and have breakfast (toast and tea), then do water aerobics at the MAC or walk around neighborhood. Can't do that type of walking again yet, but she used to do extensive walking. Cognitive decline accelerated very dramatically after recent hospital stay. About the care needs: Seek a female caregiver with lots of experience. My mother doesn't weigh a lot, but still need to help her stand up sometimes. She is hard of hearing (but definitely not deaf) so caregiver must be a native speaker of English. No specialized skills required, but my mother clearly has memory loss/dementia. Caregiver should like walking outside and socializing. Hospital stay was not fun, but the best I saw my mom in the hospital was when the nurse sat with her and drank tea and put up Tony Bennett videos. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
