About who needs care: Miss Linda is very laid back and easy to care for. She is on oxygen 24/7 and has diabetes. Miss Linda enjoys playing and watching tv. The ideal day with miss Linda is she wakes up around 10:30, checks her sugar, takes her morning medicine and gets some breakfast (and coffee). We relax and watch tv for a little bit. Whenever she is hungry again we do whatever she wants for lunch. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays a physical therapist comes in for an hour and works with her. For dinner I usually set out a plate and fork for her and she makes her own food after I leave at 6:30. I go to her about once a week.
About the care needs: Miss Linda is looking for someone who has a calling for this type of work. She wants someone who is outgoing, personable, and caring. She would like to have someone that sits in the room with her and shows companionship.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
