My name is Anjel and I'm 30 years old. My mom, Patricia, is 69 years old- she'll be 70 in May. She has Alzheimer's, diabetes, and uses a wheelchair. She lives in an assisted living facility. She goes to dialysis Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. She arrives and leaves the dialysis center by a bus. The bus driver assists her on and off the bus into the center and back to home. I need someone to meet her at the dialysis center and sit with her the entire treatment time to keep her company and make sure she stays seated and safe.
The caregiver should be positive, like to make conversation, show patience, and have a good heart. My mom likes to watch movies with someone, talk to someone, and tell stories. She will frequently repeat herself because of the Alzheimer's, but she loves companionship.
