About who needs care: Mom has Alzheimer's. She gets confused and scared. She can get lost in the house. She needs someone to fix meals and make sure she eats and drinks people food. She loves to walk her dog and dance. She really needs someone around to make sure she is safe. Right now I do all the bathing and usually have her dressed before I go to work. I work at a church and am able to be flexible with my hours. I am also very available for phone calls.
About the care needs: Mom's caregiver needs to be patient and understanding and have a good sense of humor. For example right now my mom thinks I am her nana even though she knows I look younger. lol
Once in a while she sleeps in and may need help getting dressed. She needs supervision to make sure she is putting toothpaste on her toothbrush and that deoderant goes in the armpits and not the arms.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
Preference for a caregiver who is female.
