About this Care Recipient

Hello. My mother is currently living with my sister in Chicago. We are looking to get her into a nursing home with a memory care unit (she has alzheimer's) asap, but we know the process can take several months. Until then, we are looking for someone to help take care of her to give my sister some time to work and live her life once her teenage son goes off to the military at the end of August. My mother has a very sweet disposition and is very easy to get along with, she basically lies around most of the day watching her old movies, and dozing on and off. She does get confused, and has an occasion bout of incontinence. Should be a pretty easy gig as these things go...
