About who needs care: This is a PART TIME role under 10 hours/week. Ideally this will be 2 days with 3-4 hour shifts or 1 day for 5-6 hours. My mother is struggling with anxiety, depression and paranoia. Besides someone who could sit with her and eat with her and encourage her to take her medication, she needs someone patient and caring to talk to. She is struggling with loneliness. She enjoys walking, praying, knitting, and cooking.
About the care needs: Looking for someone patient, smiley, and cheerful. While my mother needs someone who wont give in to her, she doesn't respond well to people who are stern-toned. Encouraging her to explore new hobbies and going on walks would be helpful as well.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
