Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be energetic, pleasant. She is 87 years old. She broke her hip many years ago so mainly stays in her wheelchair because of fear of falling. She can actually walk OK. She is mentally very sharp. I'm looking for someone who is patient, fond of pets. A person who enjoys spending time with the elderly and truly respects them. She has a small dog she loves dearly so someone who likes dogs and will help with some responsibilities necessary for her. The caregiver would need to occasionally take her to Dr. appointments or just get her out of the house. Also oversee her while she is walking with her walker everyday to keep her active.
