Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant, reserved. My mother-in-law needs a companion who can help get her out of the house. A walk in the park or encourage her to join a senior group (and bring her so we know she's doing things).
She also needs house cleaning and laundry done.
We are hoping for someone biweekly who can spend 1. 5 hours cleaning (bathroom, vacuuming, dishes) get a load of laundry in the wash and dryer, then go on a short outing, return and bring the clothes up from the dryer.
3 hours one day a week biweekly.
She is a heavy smoker.
Her family lives out of state. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. Looking for a kind and patient, encouraging person who can help someone who we fear might be going into depression. My mother-in-law enjoys getting her nails done. She use to play bunco. She isn't very active, but we would like for someone to take small walks with her.
She's hard of hearing and won't wear her hearing aids so we could need someone who isn't soft spoken.
