Someone who is comfortable in the kitchen and can take initiative when household chores need to be done. Mom doesn't need much in the way of personal care at this time, she is quite independent, although she had a fall in December and likes to have some assistance getting in and out of the bathtub since then. She has some balance issues and shortness of breath so uses a walker most of the time. Weekly tasks include meal prep, laundry (in the building), vacuuming and dusting when needed, washing kitchen floor and cleaning the bathroom, taking out trash and recycling. It is a small apartment, so these things don't take much time. Filling a foot bath for her to soak her feet. Checking in with her about medications, she does this on her own. I am a home health aide as well and I am there once a week. We would like someone who is competent as a home health aide so that when her needs change, everyone will be comfortable with the changes.
