About who needs care: FYI - This is an IHSS plan. She has dementia but is functional and has Epilepsy but she rarely has seizures; but, the right person should be someone with experience with seizures. She needs to walk and do some exercise (with assistance), needs to talk to someone to keep her mind active, assistance with bathing and getting dressed. At this time, I (her sister) help her bath in the morning before I leave for work. So, she is always clean. She is a fall risk because (in my opinion) she sits all day and does not exercise to keep her legs strong. The lack of movement is debilitating her.
About the care needs: She needs someone soft spoken but able to maintain direction. She is a fall risk and needs someone with physical therapy background to help her move and exercise to strengthen the muscles in her legs and arms. She does not have any hobbies.
Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
