Hands-on Care Needed For My Mother - The care for would be for m...

Full Time $17 – 31/hr Starts 11/28 Riverside, NJ
About who needs care: The care for would be for my mother. She is a retired school principal who was diagnosed with cancer and is in remission. She has also just been diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's disease. My mother and father are married and live together but my father does not have the capacity to care for her given her cognitive decline and we need assistance with medication management, companionship, light meal prep and transportation and accompanying her to doctor's visits. She enjoys walking and listening to books on tape. It would be nice for someone to help her structure her day with outings (she can no longer drive) and just companionship as warranted. She can be somewhat of an introvert so constant talking isn't necessary but having someone there to supervise and provide company would be great especially when my father isn't there. I look forward to speaking with you and filling you in on my wonderful mother. Thank you! About the care needs: Someone who understands dementia and has experience with dementia care would be essential. Someone who is gentle and will respect her self-determination but also can be firm when health-necessary things need to occur. A person who is a good communicator and can hold an intelligent conversation but is not condescending because of her age. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
