About who needs care: My grandmother is very pleasant to be around but has dementia and is pretty unsteady on her feet. She has 24/7 care. We help her get dressed, in and out of bed, we prepare her meals (she can feed herself), keep the house tidy and provide companionship. I am looking to have someone help with a few shifts so that I can get into my office.
About the care needs: Anyone caring for the elderly, especially with dementia would need to be patient. My grandmother likes to think that she is still independent, but she needs someone to keep an eye on her. She's pretty low maintenance and just having someone present is the main purpose.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
