Seeking care for my mother in her 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be anxious, pleasant, outgoing. My mother has Alzheimer's it's in the moderate phase needs constant supervision for her safety
she also has some debilitating arthritis which makes Mobility somewhat difficult
at present she has a non-weight-bearing broken right arm which also means 24-hour supervision so that she doesn't wait bear on her right arm.
I need someone that would not be afraid to go into the bathroom with her and help her with that need. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet. I am seeking someone who understands Alzheimer's and has patience .
willing to mostly sit with my mother and engage with her by playing cards and doing greeting cards.
constant supervision !
is what I need.
and someone with a compassionate understanding heart .
also I need someone that is willing and strong and able enough to walk her to the bathroom and help her with any toileting needs. My mother is a sweet gentle soul who enjoys playing cards and laughing .
she has Alzheimer's and has difficulty in remembering things short-term memory is about 5 minutes.
My mother lives with my dad and the primary caregiver in the residence is my brother so the aide would have to be comfortable with other family members being present.
But this would allow the family members to get other tasks and errands done.
