About who needs care: My mother is terminally ill with stage four metastatic breast cancer. She's enrolled in hospice and has a nurse come by every Tuesday. She's completely bed bound and need assistance with almost everything. At the moment she can eat on her own, but has a lot of spills and requires a bib. She requires her diaper to be changed, her pad she lays on to be replaced and bed baths. She needs her meals prepared and brought to her, as well as the dishes being loaded in the dish washer.
Her hobbies include watching tv, and that's it now a days. My sister lives at home as well, and works from home twice a week.
She wakes up around 9 a.m. every morning and goes to bed around 10 p.m.
There's a lot more, but these are the basic rundowns.
She currently is with a organization that sends cna and what not, but were not satisfied with them.
About the care needs: Someone who is later back. Nadine is a sweet woman, but gets understandably frustrated and angry when things don't go her way.
Just the ability to help administer medicine, change diapers/bed pads, and to prepare and clean dishes.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
