About who needs care: Has mental and physical disabilities. Has balance issues, uses a rollator to walk, very slow thought processes, slow movements (currently doing PT and OT), needs help with household duties, personal hygiene, laundry, etc. She lives with my recently divorced brother and he cannot adequately care for her without assistance.
About the care needs: Someone that is very patient as Mom takes a long time to process her thoughts and sometimes her speech. She is very slow moving and it takes her longer than the average person to accomplish tasks because she does not have the use of her left hand. A caregiver would need to be comfortable with helping her bathe, and do light tasks around the house.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
