About who needs care: Hobbies - crossword puzzles, watch TV. Health - moves around slowly without a walker or cane in the house. Does not cook much - I usually bring her dinner. Her short-term memory is going - repeats questions in the same conversation. Longer term is pretty sharp. Takes meds for sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol - manages this on her own. She has a cat named Andy. Takes care of his needs daily on her own. Cleans her own house (takes 3 days but she does it weekly!)
About the care needs: I need to start traveling occasionally for my job. Mon - Thursday. My sister can help from Ohio every so often but need a better plan. I need someone to check on her and stay for a short visit, help with meal planning/prep. She needs to be able to microwave most things. Garbage/Recycling bins to the road if needed.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
