About who needs care: Uses walker but is mobile. Has some problems with balance and sometimes needs help getting up from seated position. Takes multiple medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, memory, and psychiatric conditions. Needs reminders to take her medications on time. She loves to cook, but needs help with prep work, as she cannot stand for long periods of time.
About the care needs: Need a caregiver who is very patient and doesn't mind repeating themselves until she hears and understands what they are saying to her (she's hard of hearing). No specialized skills or hobbies/interests are required. Very important duties are reminding her to take her medications and walking around outside with her for exercise. Most of the work will entail helping her with things she's no longer physically able to do for herself (i. e. tasks around the house, personal care, light housekeeping, running errands, and occasionally taking her to medical appointments).
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
