Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, mobility assistance, transportation, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, lethargic, independent. Began chemo in March and is having a hard time with it. Very disoriented at night. She is also Hard of hearing.
Before chemo she was very independent. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm. She is suddenly prone to panic attacks so someone who could help calm her down. My mother in law is usually independent. Loves the flowers in her yard, likes to do light gardening.
Unfortunately the treatments have her afraid to be alone at night, and are causing the panic attacks whenever she wakes up. We are working with her doctors to find the root problem to all of this.
