Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, mobility assistance. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, lethargic, grouchy, reserved. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, strong. She should be kind and patient and understand dementia. She should be able to take care of mom while giving dad space. Mom has dementia and is increasingly confused - and not happy about it. She lives in a lovely apartment at Ridgefield Crossing with my father. He is taking such good care of her but it's getting to be too much. He needs help navigating this chapter and he needs a break. I have a sister in town who visits almost every day, but it's not enough. Mom likes puzzles and reading, but may be reluctant to do too much.
