About who needs care: My mom is 92, and has dementia. She needs someone who doesn't mind repeating things, as her short term memory is bad. However, she has a very sweet disposition. She needs someone to remind her and supervise her taking her daily pills, prepare her meals (she can feed herself), help her shower, play board games, etc.
About the care needs: We just want the aide to be reliable and patient and kind. MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED.
Services needed include meal preparation, errands/shopping, light housekeeping (she can eat fine on her own), bathing/dressing, doing her laundry, and washing her bedding. (There is an in-unit washer and dryer.) Housekeeping is basically cleaning up after yourself in the kitchen, as you prepare her meals, we don't expect you to be a maid as we want you focused on interacting with our mother.)
