Seeking care for my grandmother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandmother: she can be grouchy, outgoing, independent. Still trying to maintain her independence but with a failing memory, so she just doesn't understand that she has limitations or dementia. Can be negative and difficult. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, fond of pets. Someone that will encourage her to bathe, eat properly and help with walks or going on outing and enjoys board games and cards. When she is napping, will do housekeeping and not just watch TV. My grandma is very chatty but will try to convince you that shes not ill and to help her escape from us. A lot of times she thinks we are stealing, lying, poisoning, and are evil. This is our last option before we look for a facility and would like to keep her with us as long as possible, but the negativity is draining. So we need someone that has dealt with dementia before and understands the disease, who is kind, patient and will try to boost her moods.
