About this Care Recipient

My wife is 80 years old. She is diabetic and is also currently receiving cancer infusion treatments every 3 weeks in an outpatient setting at Scripps La Jolla. Mentally she is aware and conversational. However, physically she lacks basic mobility skills and needs assistance with simple tasks like sitting up in bed or feeding herself. She sleeps much of the day. She is unable to walk on her own, but can use a walker with great assistance. Recently, her diabetic blood sugar levels have been very low upon waking in the morning. Even with added glucose in her system, these low levels affect her psychological state. She becomes combative and/or non-communicative. We have difficulty with toileting, basic hygiene, dressing, self-feeding, etc. We are looking for someone who can assist us 2-3 hours in the morning and 1-2 hours in the evening with these basic tasks.
