About who needs care: My mother suffers from severe depression and is basically a shut in. She lacks routine to 1) comply with taking her medicine, 2) clean her apartment, 3) order groceries, and 4) bathe. She has been this way for approximately 7 years. She is able to hold light conversation and likes playing cards, Scrabble and other games. She spends a lot of time in bed/asleep unfortunately, but does read and watch TV as well.
About the care needs: - cannot be a push over!
- someone with a good sense of humor
- a special skill to have would be familiar with someone who can be manipulative (eg, calls to cancel but in reality just don't want to see people due to their illness)
- obviously kind and compassionate is always helpful!
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
