We need hands-on care to take care of my mother in Ithaca. She is mentally capable of taking care of herself, but recently lost part of her vision (she is still fully mobile). She needs help readjusting to living on her own, and likely some help longer term with housekeeping, going out shopping and to appointments, etc.. At the beginning, she will also need help bathing, cooking, arranging medications (she knows what she needs to take and can take herself, but may have trouble reading the labels), reading mail, and other tasks that may be harder after losing some eyesight. Ideally, the person helping her would have transportation to take her to the grocery store and doctors appts. Would prefer someone who is friendly but does not need to be constantly social. No smokers please.
