About who needs care: She loves to share stories from her past. She's blind in one eye, and hard of hearing (but won't wear hearing aids). She is scared to shower because she fell one time, so she needs someone to assure her and be close by just in case. She is housebound, so her ideal day is eating Twinkies and watching TV.
About the care needs: My mother's native language is Spanish, so someone who speaks only Spanish is fine. The only skill required is patience, and a willingness to listen to the same stories over and over.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
