About who needs care: My mom is 92, was living alone, then with my sister and now with us for past year. She is in pretty good health, a little forgetful, and spends a lot of her day sitting reading and doing word puzzles. She needs help with getting little things done, making lunch, a small load of laundry, some activities like making puzzles, playing cards or going for a walk. She needs more socialization, as she has not been able to meet other seniors or join a program due to pandemic. She loves reading, so going to the library once a week. But I usually take her. So driving not really necessary. She would definitely try new hobbies, but needs someone to initiate and do it with her.
About the care needs: Someone who is friendly, upbeat, and helps her to be a little more active. Talking short walks outside. Perhaps supervising cooking a light meal in the afternoon. She likes to eat an early dinner.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
