About who needs care: She is very sweet, but she has dementia. Sometimes she's gets snarky if She thinks she is being talked about. She needs assistance with meals and showering. She has a dog that she adores and thinks of as family. She hates to be cold (which makes getting her in the shower very difficult), she has sundowners, she LOVES to be with her family who live very close by, but gets nervous to get home within a couple hours. She loves to go out to eat and get manis/pedis.
About the care needs: We need someone who is kind and patient, not overly sensitive and who can be persuasive. Sometimes Mom is blunt and she really fights showers and sleeping in her own bedroom. She listens to family members who are more matter of fact than those who ask politely or plead. We're looking for someone who can patiently redirect our Mom, who can cook healthy meals and be a kind companion.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
