Seeking care for my mother in her 80's. Services needed: companionship, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, transportation, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, reserved, independent. She is restricted mobility wise because of two hip replacements. Uses a walker when out and about. She needs personal interaction during the days to keep from getting bored. She has started forgetting meds and had difficulty remembering to eat during the day. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. I would like someone who has dealt with seniors who are having trouble dealing with dependency from others and were use to doing most things for themselves. Patient and kind with a soft firmness. My mother doesn't like eating at home and would rather eat out most meals. When she was driving she would go there for breakfast and lunch and sometimes dinner. She worked as the school secretary for an Elementary school for 30 years. She has family near by but we all work and can't get by during the day. She reads and likes to play cards and watch TV.
