Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. 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 mother: she can be anxious, pleasant, reserved. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, fond of pets. My Mom has moderate Alzheimers and she just recovered from the coronavirus (tested negative after battling it for 3 weeks). She was exposed to it in the Memory care facility where she lived.
She is currently bed-ridden but was ambulatory before the virus (walking without assistance) and we are hoping she will be able to walk again soon.
Mom was recently enrolled in hospice (due to the virus). She has moments of lucidity although her alzheimers continues to progress and likes companionship. She likes to talk about her childhood memories and family. She is catholic and can recite all prayers.
Mom likes music and gardening as well as dogs. She also loves strawberry ice cream! She is mostly pleasant and sweet but she can get sun-downers in the afternoon which manifests itself into anxiety for which she receives medication.
