About who needs care: The parent lives in a 55 plus unit independently. I recently notice she needs help bathing and getting in an out if tub. She needs help with simple task light meal preparation and taking medication. She has good long-term memory but has episodes of forgetfulness. she drives but may need a few errands such as grocery shopping because she cannot lift many items and she cannot travel more than 15 miles. she is a smoker but goes outside of home to smoke. She watches TV court shows and westerns and loves to keep in touch with family. She is pleasant but can get easily irritable if she has not eaten with respect to her schedule.
After 4 p.m. her youngest daughter can check on her and she needs no weekend work. She needs a little bit of social interaction with the caretaker as she likes to talk about her TV shoes
About the care needs: A person that is friendly that can handle her fierceness and be ready to talk about TV shows and family. She does sleep a lot so there will b down time
Hobbies might b good as the person can play cards with my mom like UNO. She enjoys that.
