About who needs care: Depression, Anxiety, Severe Tinnitus, chronic pain, insomnia, loss of appetite, unsteady gait (uses walker), limited use of hands due to multiple injuries r/t falls. Hobbies USED to include reading, cooking (she is 100% Italian), getting her hair done once /week. Currently, due to ONE bad experience with the wrong fit caregiver, she is in a state of wanting to give up and just die. I am a RN myself and I know there is the perfect person out there for her, we just need to find the right candidate. She spends her days in the dark, but yet keeping her house immaculate despite possible risks of falls and additional injuries. Please contact her daughter Cathy to discuss position further. Thank you!
About the care needs: Preferably someone who has experience caring for patients of ALL different personalities. Someone who may be a retired RN would be a great fit. Someone who takes no nonsense, as she is an Italian with a very sharp mind and is having a hard time coming to grips that she can no longer do EVERYTHING on her own as she want to. someone with tough skin is necessary. She needs tough love with a soft understanding hand. She also would prefer someone who does not like to chat a lot.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
