Seeking Senior caregiver for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: transportation, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, grouchy, outgoing. Strong personality; can be demanding. Usually kind to those she is not related to. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. Patient, kind and doesn't mind personal questions... can stand the smell of smoke from cigarettes. My Dad passed Jan. 1 at 75. My 74-year-old Mother and he were together since they were 15 & 17 years old. My mother depended on my Father to continue to work and pay their mortgage for a home she must now sell. She needs rides to dr. appointments and stores and grocery shopping.
My Mother never drove and has macular degeneration; is legally blind. She insists on living at least an hour away from her family and plans on living an hour to two hours away when she is forced to sell her home, prior to foreclosure. My older Brother and I try to help her out... my younger sister lives two and a half hours from my Mother at this time and doesn't have reliable transportation. I am at high risk for the virus; therefore will not go to stores. Her neighbors help with trash to dump and snow removal.
