About who needs care: My grandmother, Trudy currently is living independently and very much enjoys it. Daily, she enjoys going on walks, listening to music, watching shows, chatting with neighbors, and making snacks. If Trudy had more structure in her day she would enjoy painting, gardening, reading, cooking and playing musical instruments. Trudy would need 4 or so hours of structure in her day that would include taking prescribed medication, taking a shower/changing clothes, tidying up her home/doing one cleaning activity, having a hot meal warmed or prepared with help, and a possible social activity that was listed prior.
About the care needs: A caregiver fit for Trudy would be a person that enjoys talking, but also listening to stories. Trudy gets along with all individuals, but a plus if you speak any German or have any pets.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
