About who needs care: My mother is 84 years old. . She has Dementia w/ mild symptoms of Lewy body. She has a very mild demeanor and is easy going. I need assistance with her because I have had back surgery and hip replacements so I can not bend and lift her as needed. . We are working on motivating her to do other things. I fix her breakfast every morning after she is dressed and she watched tv until dinner. It would be nice if the care giver could take her out on some sort of outing sometimes. She likes Bingo and shopping, car rides, church, and eating out.
About the care needs: The ideal caregiver should be patient, gentle, caring, able to listen and communicate effectively, and flexible.
There may be times when I may need the caregiver to work different hours than the set hours and even possibly do overnight on occasion.
Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
