About who needs care: Very anemic due to kidney disease. Also has heart and liver issues. She is on a restricted diet. She does not cook other than breakfast so would need dinners prepared. Uses a walker but is not steady on her feet when not hanging on to the walker. Loves to crochet, watch Hallmark movies and do word searches.
Ideal day is brunch around 11am, watch a Hallmark movie, chat but she's hard of hearing so you have to talk loud, and dinner around 5 or 6 (she can warm it up in the microwave but cannot prepare it. She's a night owl so goes to bed late. Likes to talk to her siblings, kids and friends on the phone.
About the care needs: She is conservative, religious, and very friendly and sweet. She loves to talk about her past. So a good fit would be someone who is a good listener who doesn't mind hearing the same story repeatedly. It would help if they liked Hallmark too! Skills would be light housekeeping, cooking, and putting food away (ordered via Ship and delivered to the house). If they have a hobby and want to bring it to show her or do while talking to her that would be fine.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
