Seeking care for my mother in her 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant, grouchy, reserved, independent. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about 4 years ago. It has progressed pretty quickly. She typically sleeps 20 hrs a day but some days she's up for several hours. She's typically very quiet but occasional crankiness. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. Can be chatty when mom is awake but would need to be able to "hang out" if she is sleeping. My mom currently wears depends, typically doesn't need changed in the afternoons, I change her in the morning and/or evening. If she's awake I would appreciate her getting a shower, brushing teeth, changing clothes etc.
I'm a salesman and I work from home in the morning but typically need to leave around 2 for outside appointments. My husband gets home around 6. We're thinking around 4 hours each week day I have outside appointments.
