Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant, reserved. My mom needs companionship. She is lonely and needs a nice friend to chat with and provide support. She has onset of dementia and her mobility is limited. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong, fond of pets. I would like a care taker who is in charge and provides their own ideas on entertainment and activities. Someone that likes to chat to make my mom talk more. Someone who is kind and sweet. My mom likes getting her hair done, nails, and enjoys sun bathing. She honestly has no job hobbies but I would like to find one for her. She walks with a cane but likes being pushed around the development. She lives next to me and I need a break. It's too much to care for my mother full time and try to work, be a wife, etc. She is very very forgetful and has trouble hearing which relates to her being quiet these days. She does have hearing aids that have to be monitored for her.
