About who needs care: My 87-year-old grandmother needs someone to come over for a couple hours in the morning, make sure she had breakfast, takes pills, no problems in the shower, make sure she's all set for the day etc. and someone to come for a couple hours in the evening make sure she had dinner, all set for bed, help with the tv, etc. On specific days take her to appointments, bring groceries or take her to the store. She is pretty fit and healthy for 87. She had a fall last year which has caused some memory issues. She has cataracts and does have vision problems. She is nice most of the time and has a good sense of humor. Needs company and not to feel like shes being babysat. She mainly requires random help (getting something down, help with iPad) and her family cant always drop everything on a daily basis. She understands this fee is out of pocket. She enjoys reading dirty books, tv and movies, and good conversation.
About the care needs: Someone she can talk/gossip to like a friend. Not someone who treats her like she's incapable or like an old lady. Someone who watches Young and Restless would be a plus. Someone who knows general technology (help with cell phone)
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
