About who needs care: My grandmother has diabetes, high blood pressure, CHF, and uses a walker to get around. She loves watching cooking shows, golf, tennis and church on TV. She always starts her morning with a very hot cup of coffee while watching the news then Price is Right. She has the biggest sweet tooth and loves salty foods. Both of which she's supposed to avoid lol. She usually falls Asleep in the afternoon while watching tv. She loves telling stories about her life and her late husband and loves to laugh!
About the care needs: The ideal caregiver would be someone who could deal with my grandmother when she is in a cranky mood and can brush it off and move on. Someone who will sit and talk with her and listen to her stories, watch Tv with her or even play cards. We need someone who can drive my grandmother to and from her appointments with her primary doctor, cardiologist and wound Dr. Also would like someone who could do a little bit of healthy cooking for her. Something she could eat with low sodium and no sugar. My grandma gets lonely so most important is just someone who she can hang out with and talk to for a few hours a day.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
