I need someone to look after my Mom from about 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. every Wednesday. Hours are somewhat flexible, but I would need someone here at least from 10 - 4. Ideally I'd also like someone who can do occasional evenings and back-up for the other caregivers, but this is not required.
My Mom has Alzheimer's disease and requires assistance with bathing, dressing, taking medication, food preparation, etc. Most importantly she needs someone who is able to provide her with companionship and try to keep her engaged with the world. This is a challenge, because she is no longer able to do the things that she's always enjoyed - (reading, writing, crossword puzzles, scrabble, etc.). She's never been a crafty person either.
I live on a farm about 10 miles SW of Monmouth (10 miles South of Dallas), right off Kings Valley Highway.
