Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be grouchy. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong. She has extreme reluctance to change. She has extreme mobility issues and is unable to care for herself for any period of time greater than a few hours. She lives in a two-story home with an upstairs bathroom and uses a portable toilet downstairs to prevent climbing steps.
She CAN be friendly to non-family members - depending on her mood and desire.
