About who needs care: We believe she is showing signs of dementia. She does enjoy walks and going out to lunch. She needs help with all living activities including but not limited to dressing, bathing, walking, etc. She enjoys company but when she's having a bad day of not feeling well she stays in bed.
About the care needs: The ideal caregiver would be patient, understanding and caring. Be able to lift a body weight of 120lbs to help get her up from chairs or in bed. I would hope to see a caregiver that will enjoy walks, conversation, and going to lunch when she likes to get out of the house. Hours of need would would include a few days throughout the week and occasional overnight stay on the weekends.
Services needed include: transportation, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
