Seeking Full-time Senior Care Provider - Underlying conditions:...

Full Time $20 – 50/hr Starts 06/04 Indianapolis, IN
About who needs care: Underlying conditions: - COPD - A-Fib - Wheelchair bound - Arthritic and Neuropathy - Full in-dwelling catheter - Sensitive skin (prone to skin tears and bruising) - Diabetic - High blood pressure Dad likes cars, funny and light hearted TV shows, running errands, horse racing (and betting), and airplanes and talking about flying. We are still working on what the ideal day will be. Watching his favorite shows, getting him out of the house for a bit, letting him be outside for a little bit and someone to be there and share stories with goes a long way. There may be some medication handling throughout the day, primarily just giving him what has already been organized and prepared. About the care needs: Someone who has a strong work ethic and good sense of integrity is important to us. Someone who is patient and thoughtful to help dad work through his thoughts and keep him safe during transfers and movement. Organization and open communication to us to keep us informed of any changes to dads conditions so we can act swiftly as a team. Continuity of care is an extremely important thing for dad and for us, so we need someone who will be consistent. Being a nurse is a necessity given the complexity of dads conditions. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.

Seeking Senior Care Provider - My mother is 61 years old, legall...

One Time $15 – 15/hr Starts 06/06 Indianapolis, IN
About who needs care: My mother is 61 years old, legally blind and diabetic. She can see very little. She would start her day off about 9:30-9:45 by getting her prepackaged meds and 3 post surgery eye drops (5 minutes apart) in her right eye by gently touching below the eye to pull it down so drops can get placed in without touching the upper eyelid which I will demonstrate in person. Then she will need something to eat (located in freezer) pending she is ready to get up right away after her meds and drops. If not she sleep a couple or few more hours. Her glucose would need to be checked via an electronic meter or her cell phone. She does not have to be pricked as she uses a G6 Dexcom glucose monitoring system and is very easy to use. Depending on what she is eating and what her glucose is she will get insulin via an insulin pen. Around 2:30-3:30 she will need assistance in the shower but only for 2 of the days you will be there which are the 8th and the 10th. In between those days she will just need her face and eyes gently cleaned with a warm cloth which I will also demonstrate for you. About 4-4:10 p.m. she will need those same drops again. You will not be constantly working so watching tv etc.. and just hanging around the house is acceptable. I will have a printed up list of what all to do located on the fridge. To sum it up, eye drops, give meds, food and showers. Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
