Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Female caregiver preferred. She has never been a physically active person. She is not very social or outgoing. She likes to have company sometimes but overall she tends to like to do her own thing (which is usually watching tv/movies, reading, painting/drawing). She doesn't feel she needs help/support and has been hesitant to have caregiver support outside of family. However, my mother broke her hip 6 months ago and while she has recovered, she is still limited in her mobility, and needs a walker to support her on getting around.
With her current physical limitations, we are now in need of additional support to help us care for my mom going forward. Myself and my brother are her only family and we both have full-time jobs and young children So we are hoping to find help 3 days a week. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm. Because of my mom's introverted personality I'd like to find someone who is closer in age to her who can relate a little better to her and possibly have more in common. Possibly in their 50s or even late 40s. I think this would also help her feel more comfortable with having someone who is not family help her.
