About who needs care: She has been diagnosed with Dementia - she is able to feed herself, and use the bathroom without assistance. I will need someone to help her shower on Sunday and change her clothes. Daily tasks would be putting clothes away, folding clothes, lunch, medicine (w/lunch), occasional laundry mat, trips to the store/mall/walks both days when weather permits, social interaction-care giver will need to use their vehicle as she does not have one. There is an elder center nearby that has activities I would like for her to go to one Wednesdays - maybe an hour or two.
About the care needs: We need a take charge individual - someone who can interact with her and be patient. Have conversations - be kind, but also able to be autoreactive when necessary. Someone who can look after her - clean up any mess she makes (wipe table, get her to wash her hands) someone with experience with people with memory issues would be great. Someone who knows how to enjoy themselves and is versatile. We have dogs - and cameras.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
