Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, help staying physically active, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, grouchy, independent. PTSD from trauma (camp fire in Paradise, ca) kicked dimentia into overdrive.. short term memory is often less than 30 seconds.
I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. Needs to be able to pretend that they're there just to help around the house, as she refuses to accept she could need help herself in any way (very prideful) - but if you can play the game she's actually kind and fun to talk with. Occasionally incontinence, but for the most part self reliant. She can help with basic meal prep, but it's usually easier to minimize that as if she encounters something she can't do she will get frustrated and then angry.
