About who needs care: My mother had a stroke in 10/22. She is finally home but has limited mobility due to severe weakness of left side. Requires 1:1 transfers, uses beside commode, bed pan, and disposable briefs, uses wheelchair and transfer boards with 1:1 assistance. Mother is able to eat and drink independently and has a regular diet. She enjoys yard work, cats, decorating her home, action movies, naps, and has an upbeat humorous attitude. She likes to get sass as much as she likes to give it. The ideal daily structure would be for someone to tend to her hygiene and food prep needs, assist with appts (if needed), and a companion. She has a car for supporters to use when out and about.
About the care needs: We are looking for an upbeat humorous staff, that is familiar with 1:1 transfers, is capable to help with her daily exercises and get out of the house 1-2 times a week. Love of classic rock and AC/DC would be great, but not necessary. We have 11 indoor/outdoor cats as a warning for those with allergies (we do our best to vacuum daily). Our house is smoke free, but staff will be able to take smoke breaks
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
