About this Care Recipient

Our mother is 81, energetic, smart, great sense of humor, very active. Her short term memory is gone, but she retains her sense of independence and dignity. She enjoys gardening, walking, her dog, and tidying up. We need a companion who is comfortable with patient suggesting rather than directing, hanging out and going with the flow while keeping her hydrated and fed, and who also gets along with our father, who is mainly functioning well but who has been the main caretaker and it has taken a toll on his health.
