Seeking care for my loved one in her 50s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. A little more about my loved one: she can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant. Suffers from Bipolar (but pretty well managed with meds) and autoimmune (Sjogrens) she has greatly declined over the years and is tired of family helping. She needs someone to motivate her to get up for the day and to get going and to regulate her meds. We have someone clean her house once a week, so only basic cleaning up as you go is needed. She can drive, but prefers someone drive her to appts. She has a strong family support system, but we thought another companion/helper would be good for her. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, fond of pets. Someone to push her to get off the couch and do things to help herself as well as help her during her flare ups. My sister used to be a fun loving, outgoing person that worked as a nurse for years. She has struggled both mentally and physically the last 10 years. She wants everyone to believe it's all physical, but the truth is it is both. She can be very enjoyable to be around and enjoys meeting new people. We think a new face would maybe perk her up a bit. We need someone kind but firm in getting her up to do things for herself as much as possible as she is good at manipulating people to do everything for her. We know she is capable of so much more than she is doing.
