About who needs care: We are looking for care for our kind and optimistic mom, Dee. Dee is almost 74 years old and lives with her husband, Gene, and two friendly cats in their three-story home. Dee had a sever stroke about a year ago, and she is in a wheelchair. She has no movement or feeling on her left side. Her memory is quite good, but she can sometimes struggle with dates and organization (executive function). Dee and Gene currently have a CNA who comes in the morning. We're looking for a second CNA to help in the afternoons with transfers (in/out of bed and in/out of the wheelchair), toileting, meal prep, errands, appointments (you can drive Dee's car) and household chores. Ideally this individual has experience working with stroke victims. Also, we are hopeful this person can fill in when the morning CNA takes maternity leave in late January.
About the care needs: We are looking for a reliable and trustworthy CNA who will match Dee's positive attitude. This person will arrive on time to work in a pleasant environment. We need someone who can manage Dee's therapy and doctor appointments and be sure she arrives on time and ready to go. Despite her stroke, Dee has excellent communication skills and can speak very clearly.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
