Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, outgoing. She has advanced dementia. She is generally in a good mood, but can become very anxious when her husband leaves the house. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. The caregiver must have experience with advanced dementia individuals, and must extremely patient with- and be good natured about-the effects of dementia, such as repeated questions and conversations. My mother lives with her husband and her husband's daughter. Her husband has some health challenges now and must attend frequent doctor appointments. He must be driven by his daughter, which will leave my mother alone from time to time. My mother gets anxious when she is home alone. I need someone who can answer her questions and keep her occupied and calm while she is home alone. There may be a need for simple meal prep as well.
