About who needs care: My mother has macular degeneration, and my stepdad has dementia. My mother jokes that she can't see, and he can't think, so it takes the both of them to do most tasks.
My mother is a retired school bus driver, bus shop employee and former caregiver. She loves to cook and still tries, although it is very concerning.
My stepdad is a former high school football coach and driver's education instructor and had always been very active.
They need help finding lost items around the home, light household tasks, such as washing the dishes, throwing out spoiled food and running errands, especially trips to the grocery and drug stores.
Putting appointments and reminders into my mother's cellphone would be helpful and any additional tech support would be great.
About the care needs: An outgoing, friendly, caring, communicative, innovative, organized, person would be ideal.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.
