About who needs care: My mom has Lewey Body dementia and is incontinent, has lost control of her bowels and cannot bathe, dress or feed herself. She can walk but needs assistance. My dad is present and able to help, but at 87 years old, he cannot do as much as he once could.
Ideally, a caregiver would be a companion but mostly there to help her with everyday tasks, including preparing a couple of meals daily.
About the care needs: My parents are Christ-followers and are people-oriented. The caregiver would need to be physically able to help my mom maneuver, bathe and even get her up should she fall.
She is presently in a care facility, but my dad wants to bring her home.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
