Seeking a patient, experienced, detail-oriented CG (caregiver) for 83-yr-old father & 88-yr-old mother who live with me; both have dementia. CG will be like 'part of the family'.
A team of three CG's already assist with daytime ADL's. Your position will assist with serving dinner, give reminders for dinner meds & inhalers, help w/ after-dinner cleanup, and provide companionship until bedtime. Then you assist w/ bedtime ADL's like reminders for denture care, changing to nightgown (Mom) and medicine reminders. After bed, you remain until I or my husband are home.
Experience w/ Alzheimer's is a Must for working w/ Mom.
Both parents may need assistance w/ walking.
I may work side-by-side w/ you if I'm home.
They enjoy listening to music, games, doing crafts & puzzles, although at night they usually watch TV.
