We are looking for a kind female to spend a few hours a day, 3-4 times per week with my mom, who is 83, as well as help with meals, medication reminder, and bathing. She sleeps late, so we need someone who can come in the afternoon and possibly into the early evening. Cleaning would be a plus. She has her own apt in 2-flat in my building in Oak Park. She's very sweet, smart, and easygoing and in pretty good physical health - can go up / down stairs slowly and fine to walk. She does have problems with short-term memory, so memory loss experience is a plus.
You must be kind, thoughtful, and be willing and able to converse with her while providing good company. References are a must. Sorry to the excellent male caregivers - we and she insist on having a female for her comfort. Personality, experience, and attentiveness are key.
