About the care needs: A patient, caring, kind woman who knows how to change pull-ups and briefs in bed and clean area. One who will be willing to learn my routine for care both morning and night. Once learned, very easy. Do not want anyone who is controlling and too quick in helping me. Must be patient for I am slow in doing things because I'm weak. I like to do certain things until I'm not able to do, as in transferring, helping to get dressed. I am used to my routine which is easy to learn and do. A loyal and reliable person who will show up or at least call when unable to come. I have to have help everyday getting up and dressed and at night getting undressed and in bed ready for the night.
