About who needs care: My Mom is 78 and has been diagnosed with mixed dementia. She also has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which can cause atrial fibrillation. When this occurs, she needs to go to the hospital immediately.
My aunt died in Chicago and there is a memorial service in northeast Chicago Area on January 14 at 10 a.m. The caregiver would need to be there from 4:30a until we got home late that evening or night.
About the care needs: A very calm and assuring demeanor. My Mom can get very anxious with unfamiliarity. She does sleep a lot during the day.
They do have a dog that will need to be fed, let out, and given medication (1 pill, once).
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
