About who needs care: Beginning stages of dementia. Has high blood pressure and heart arythmia. Takes meds and does really good. She is a fall risk, so I don't like to leave her alone anymore.
She loves to watch movies, go outside if it is cool enough, and likes to take "sunday drives" so to speak. Just likes to ride and check out the scenery. LOL.
She is pretty easy. She eats breakfast, watches tv, likes to go get a burger from a fast food joint now and then, watch a movie, then she goes to bed after dinner.
About the care needs: Must be patient, she has dementia and will ask the same questions over and over. Must like dogs, we currently have 4 but one is a foster.
No specialized skills are required. She is pretty easy. She just has trouble getting around and uses a cane. She moves pretty slow, so again, patience is required.
No specific hobbies. She does like the history and movies. She does like a good conversation, so being able to carry on a decent conversation would be important. But, on the other hand, if you are an incessant talker, that would not be good either. She does like to watch her movies without a lot of chatter.
Services needed include: companionship, and mobility assistance.
