Seeking care for myself in my 60s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. A little more about myself: I can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant, outgoing, independent. I have severe osteoporosis, COPD, fibromyalgia and vascular disease. I have a small 6 lb. dog and live in senior citizen housing. I have an aide that comes twice a week but I'm not getting all the help I need. But my insurance covers it. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, fond of pets. One who knows how to keep my apartment clean, can prepare a large one dish meal that will last me a few days and doesn't mind doing some laundry and grocery shopping and sometimes an errand. I can't get outside and walk too far. My back is bad and starts hurting after 10 minutes on my feet. I watch TV, work on genealogy and play games on my phone.
