Seeking care for my mother in her 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 7+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my mother: she can be lethargic, pleasant, outgoing. End stage CHF and Metastatic Breast Cancer. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, fond of pets. Someone who can be comfortable working in an older cluttered home. Someone who has kindness and patience. Ideally someone skilled in working with folks coping with end of life stress. My mother has been going through ups and down with a dual heart and cancer diagnosis. Her physical state has degraded rapidly. She is attempting to have a valve procedure so she can begin cancer treatment therapies. She is in a mostly bedridden state due to shortness of breath and has challenges getting enough nutrition. It' s just requiring more care than her family is able to provide successfully.
