About who needs care: We need care for my mom and dad. Mom (88) has high anxiety and memory problems. She can get around in a walker but mainly stays in her chair and watches TV. She has a lot of pain (arthritis, neck and back pain). Dad (90) has had a heart attack (15 years ago) and a stroke (2 years ago). He uses a wheel chair and walker to get around. He has been the one to take care of things around the house (make coffee/food) since Mom's mobility issues and memory have gotten worse, but he is currently getting over bronchitis and is getting weaker. They have 4 daughters nearby who help with grocery shopping, medical appointments, medication control, etc., but it's time for more in home care. Mom is not interested in anything except TV. Dad played golf up until his stroke (about 2 years ago) and likes poker. I was taking him to play poker once a week until he got bronchitis a few weeks ago. Hopefully, he'll get stronger soon and we can start that again.
About the care needs: My mom doesn't talk much so my dad needs someone to talk to.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.
