About who needs care: 92-year-old woman in overall good physical condition. Uses a cane, but mobile. Significant hearing loss, and uses hearing aids. Remains sharp mentally, but beginning to display focus and long-term memory issues. Hospitable, but protective of her privacy and space. At this stage in life, fearful of losing autonomy/independence. Recently stopped driving herself, and so needs periodic transportation/assistance in grocery shopping, other short-term errands.
About the care needs: Needs to be a good communicator, to display interest in and empathy toward others, but not to be overly talkative. Needs a strong but tactful personality capable of winning an old, very independent woman over to accepting assistance. Needs emotional maturity and sound judgement/decision-making skills. Must be reliable and service-oriented.
