Seeking Part-time Senior Care Provider In Ayden

Full Time $10 – 15/hr Starts 05/05 Ayden, NC
About who needs care: Mama has a complex medical history that includes diabetes occasional TIAs and a recent cancer diagnosis. She doesn't meet the criteria yet for hospice but she is a fall risk. She weighs approximately 110 lbs and is 5'2" tall. She is generally cooperative but is very easily fatigued. Before her condition deteriorated she enjoyed gardening/cooking/preserving and various hand crafts (sewing/knitting mainly). Ideally we need someone to be here on the nights when both of us have to be at work to make sure she doesn't fall while trying to go to the bathroom. Any help with light housekeeping - dusting/sweeping/laundry - would be MUCH appreciated There is one cat who lives indoors and is friendly. Three cats live outside (and will jump into your vehicle if doors/windows are left open; sorry). We will handle all animal care; we just wanted potential applicants to know in case of allergies. Mama's sleeping habits are off-kilter right now so she typically sleeps for a couple of hours at a time then wakes up wanting a drink and something to nibble on. We try VERY hard to ensure that her snacks are at least somewhat health; but given her overall lack of appetite we tend to be happy if she eats anything. Mama's greatest fear is being put into a nursing facility and forgotten so we are doing everything we can to prevent that. If you can help us keep her comfortably in her own home we would be very thankful. About the care needs: Mama would do best with someone who can be cheerful and encouraging while also being firm; she has a tendency to want to do as much for herself as she can. A caregiver would need to be able to coax her into getting up when needed (bathroom trips mainly) without getting frustrated or impatient. Applicants need to be able to safely assist a fragile and easily bruised female with getting up and down from chairs and her bed. There is a half-bath in her bedroom; the walk-in shower (with grab bars and a shower seat) is a few feet away in the hall bath. Anyone who is willing to listen to - and engage in - conversations about gardening or cooking or needlework would make Mama very cheerful. Services needed include: meal preparation, companionship, dressing, and mobility assistance.
