We need hands-on care to take care of my mother in Phoenix. She is 95 and doing well, mentally, but has broken all three sections of her back over the years, so is not steady on her feet. She can transfer and walk, but can't stand long to prepare food or other more simple tasks. She spent the last month in a rehab facility for a broken leg and will return home this week. We prefer a caring person over a nursing home. Some light tidying up is involved. Assistance with bathing is one of our requirements. Additional responsibilities include meal preparation. We're looking for someone to provide companionship. We might ask you to run errands now and then. You'll be responsible for transporting to/from appointments. Preferences for a caregiver who is a non-smoker, comfortable with pets and CPR / first-aid trained a plus.
