Relationship: mother, How soon is care needed: Within Two weeks, Hours per day: 4 - 6 , Days per week: 2, Description: Daughter seeking respite care for my 85 year old mother who lives in her own lovely home on the north side of Escondido, California. She has end stage Parkinson's disease, visual impairment, and speech and swallowing problems, but a sharp mind. She has a current live in caregiver. Duties involve assistance in mobility, med reminders, meal preparation and feeding assistance, standby transfer assistance (she currently can walk with a walker but is unsteady on feet), companionship, light housekeeping, personal hygiene and dressing. We are looking for a caregiver as the third member of a care team from 1:00 to 5:00 on Mondays and Fridays, however there is some flexibility. Mom enjoys arts and crafts, listening to music, watching TV, playing games, and gardening and enjoying the birds that come to the back patio.
