Seeking care for my mother in her 60's.
Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Male caregiver preferred.
A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, lethargic, grouchy, reserved. She has suffered a stroke, has had multiple surgeries involving her heart, and has been bed ridden since September from pneumonia and other effects. She lives with her daughter but she works and can't lift mother who is much heavier.
Needs assistance in all areas. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, firm, strong, fond of pets. This person needs to be kind of enough to be sympathetic of her dealings but firm enough to encourage her to get up and get moving. She's a rock at first but when she really likes you she opens up and is a softy. She needs someone who can be patient with her feelings. My mother has lost a lot of weight and malnourished from stroke. She needs around the clock help with everything. Shopping, appointments, chores, and eating. She has some spirit left in her just gotta pull it out. She has 6 grand babies and really would like to get back to her old self. She's loves baseball and football. Anything astros! She used to love going to bingo and going to the movies. Once she gets her momentum and ability to walk again I truly believe she will find herself again. She's struggling with depression since the stroke and loss of mobility. She can't eat or hold anything down let alone shower so she needs a lot of help In those areas. She loves cats and dogs but unfortunately too stressed about her condition to find joy in their companionship anymore.
