Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, light housekeeping. 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, reserved. My mother has Alzheimer's. She is mobile and can eat on her own. However, she needs healthy light meals prepared. She is incontinent and needs bathroom assistance. She is anxious in the late afternoons. We prefer someone who has experience with this type of patient. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet. We are on our fourth caregiver. My mother is a kind, compassionate person, but the Alzheimer's has made her be sometimes difficult... stubborn. We need someone who can be firm, but kind. As of now, my mother will not let the caregiver do light housework or prepare meals. This makes it difficult for the caregiver to do her job properly.
