About who needs care: Mother has dementia/ALZ, looking for Spanish speaking companion, long term, with potentially more hours, duties as time progresses. Mother lives with me and my husband. We added on to home so she has her own bedroom, bth and living room. Mother sleeps late, usual day starts at 11 a.m. She still dresses, makes her bed, watches TV. Not the best eater, prefers cookies lol. I try and make sure she eats well, when warmer takes walk. Our routine is 3x a week I wash her hair and then start the shower. Currently she is still able shower by herself. She is becoming more hermit like, not wanting to leave her area of house, and not interested in doing much.
About the care needs: Patient, good listener, cheerful, Spanish-speaking. Someone who can encourage her to walk, sit in the backyard - eat a meal with mom. Also, someone that will do light housekeeping in moms area of the house. As illness progresses more assistance/hours will be needed.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
