Looking for someone familiar with mobility issues, Parkinson's and mild dementia. My mom recently had hip surgery and is currently using a walker but needs to be monitored as much as possible while she is up as she is unstable. She needs help with bathing and dressing, meal prep, physical therapy and light housekeeping. She lives with her husband so he is usually home but may go out occasionally to run errands, do yard work, etc. They have a small dog who is very friendly, but he will bark when you're at the door. My mom is 86 years old, very easygoing and quite petite but she does need firm reminding about her limitations as she likes to get up on her own.
Upbeat personality, is creative with creating distractions and helping the patient feel as if she is busy.
I believe there is a bus stop not far from the home but there is street parking for a car
