Hands-on Care Needed For My Mother In Buffalo

Part Time $15 – 25/hr Starts 05/04 Buffalo, NY
About who needs care: My mother has moderate dementia but is declining pretty rapidly nowadays. We would need someone with lots of experience dealing with dementia patients. She can be unpredictable and easily gets frustrated and panicky. Before she got dementia my mom loved to travel the world and belonged to several women's groups... reading groups etc. She was a social worker for 45 years and loves all people. She has always been highly active and social... going going going from the moment she woke up until bedtime. Boredom is her biggest enemy... so it is torture for her that she can no longer plan activities or make phone calls. She needs help throughout the day but mainly in the hours between lunch and dinner so from 12-4. She could also probably use a visit from a caregiver in the evening after dinner. About the care needs: We need someone with experience dealing with dementia patients with behavioral symptoms. Someone who will not engage in conflict with our mother but can use creativity and humor to defuse a situation. We definitely need someone who likes to keep ACTIVE. My mother does not do well sitting around the apartment watching TV. Just taking her to a store makes her feel like she won the lottery. She is easy to please but needs a caregiver who will sign her up for activities at her senior living facility so that she can keep busy and keep her mind engaged. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
