Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: meal preparation, medication prompting, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be grouchy, reserved. She has dementia and believes she does and still can remember to do the everyday things she needs to do like take care of cleaning, taking her meds, and remembering to bath regularly. She can become irritated when addressing these issues, otherwise a pleasant person. She does not get around much because of arthritis, but still very mobile. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, fond of pets. I would like someone that is familiar with working with patients that have dementia and know how to speak to patients without making the patient feel bad, or get upset with the patient's own truth, yet can be firm enough to reassure the patient the need for the care. My mother enjoys watching TV and taking care of her dog. She enjoys having coffee with friends and seeing her grand-kids.
