Hands-on Care Needed For My Mother - Looking for someone who can...

Part Time $17 – 50/hr Starts 09/23 Washington, DC
About who needs care: Looking for someone who can be more of a fast paced personal assistant and jack-of-all trades; The woman needing help does have medical conditions that are well managed and the care is less medically focused and more task related. She is capable of doing most things herself but would like to save time and energy. Companionship is not sought but a cheerful, friendly, warm disposition that matches hers is appreciated. She (like most) wants to be treated as family and not like a patient. Respect and confidentiality are imperative. Example of daily schedule: 8 am- bring in the newspaper and any mail; make and deliver morning shake, consult about breakfast menu (cooking skills preferred). If she doesn't appear to be awake, check her schedule and wake her if needed (she doesn't sleep in past 8:30) Start laundry when needed, make protein shakes for the week, and feed the very friendly dog. 8:15-9am- make coffee and breakfast, set table, serve breakfast at promptly 9am (on cereal mornings anticipate when almost finished and prepare toast so it is served warm and buttered), and provide morning pills. 9am-10:15am- While she eats breakfast, set up nebulizer, make bed, tidy couch and areas around the home. 10:15-10:45- do dishes, clean kitchen, water plants (they have a schedule of their own, as their presentation is important to her). Consult with her about other tasks needed for the day. 11am-bring protein shake to her after she is done w/nebulizing. 11:00-12pm -move forward with tasks identified for the day. Typically making phone calls, setting up/rescheduling appointments, ordering essentials and groceries (keep inventory), refilling medication, handle bills as requested, provide tech support and instructions (strong computer/tech skills required), run errands. Keep a running list of tasks completed so she can track what is outstanding. About the care needs: Looking for a motivated self starter, detail oriented, strong computer and technology skills, cooking and plant care skills preferred, someone who can anticipate needs and do them without having been asked, someone who can provide suggestions and advice (ex: which apple watch meets her needs). You should be comfortable working at a fast pace and giving gentle reminders as needed (what has already been done or what needs to be prioritized). Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
