Seeking care for my mother in her 90s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be pleasant, independent. She has some memory issues, can be a bit sarcastic at times. Enjoys art, books, genealogy, knitting. Not very active, needs walker, but uses wheelchair in outings. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong, fond of pets. Flexible. She needs encouragement to be more active, as she will tend to stay in bed otherwise.
My sister lives at the same home and has health issues (both physical & mental) as well. She may also need assistance on occasion. She needs a lot of patience, understanding, needs someone to be firm and not easily manipulated. She can be helpful at times, but has some bad days. These days my mother needs to be their top focus.
