About who needs care: My grandmother is 89, just about to to turn 90. Her feet are damaged from a lifetime of poor care, its very difficult for her to walk. She also has a very hard time remembering how many pills shes taken each day (pain medication & one for ankle swelling).
About the care needs: She needs someone kind but not a pushover. Shes fairly stubborn & loves to talk about the past. Her sense of humor is slightly crude, but she has a very proper exterior.
If a caregiver was also interested in sewing (hopefully already knows how to), quilting, talking about the Depression era, or cooking, my grandmother would like that.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.
