Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: feeding, bathing / dressing, medication prompting, mobility assistance, help staying physically active. Looking for someone with 7+ 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 anxious, independent. Recovering from fractured hip; lives alone (widow); supportive son and daughter in law; minimal meds ; uses walker ; vegan and limited meal options. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet. At this time very hesitant for visiting support. Post rehab from fall progressing OK but stability on walker is challenging when making meals.
Usually has coffee , toast , peanut butter , all fruit , veggies , etc. Narrow food choices as a vegan. Uses pull up now to not have to get up for bathroom over night.
Washes hair and brushes teeth OK ... we re still concerned about balance.
Will evaluate assisted living eventually.
