About who needs care: My Mom has dementia. She can still clean herself and care for her house, but I'd like her to have more interaction and light cognitive interaction. I think social engagement with someone coming to her would be very helpful in lifting her spirits and keeping her brain going.
About the care needs: I think somebody who has experience in working with those who have dementia/alzheimers would be incredibly helpful. Patience will be key, as will having the skills to redirect her attention when she gets fixated on things. She used to love to travel, so somebody who would help stimulate her brain around places she has been, going through her old travel photos, etc. would likely be helpful.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
