About who needs care: Hello!! My mother Dorothy G is 80 years old. She and my Dad (83) are still living in the lower floor of their home. Mom has Alzheimer's and is incontinent. She is very unstable and walked with a walker. Their current caregiver is not working out and seems to forget to come by. She mainly needs help showering, getting dressed for the day, help with meals for both, help with walking to the bathroom and helping with that. She also needs companionship, someone to help keep her active if possible. There will be more, I just cant list it all!! Thank you!! Mom and dad are great, they have not come to terms with moms diagnosis and sometimes dad just needs someone to talk to about what is happening with mom. Dad volunteers at our Store on Tuesdays and needs someone to stay with mom the whole afternoon. Someone to help make meals for both of them. Mom loves to watch TV but she used to love to garden and was very active in her church until about 6 years ago.
About the care needs: Would like someone who is a good listener and doesn't mind talking to mom and dad both!! Would be good to have someone who knows how to make good, tasty meals. Don't need any specific interests, just a nice, kind person who loves elderly people.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
