Anita J Mitchell, who is 83 is in need of care on a weekly basis while I work 5 days a week. She is currently in assisted living. I am figureing she will need between 4-6 hrs 3 days a week. I am trying to see how she will do at home on her own, but assistance with showers, and laundry will be needed for sure. Possibly meal preparations as well. She gets around on her walker and can get herself to the bathroom. She has new hearing aids. She has a bad short term memory, she may need to be reminded of certain things . She is on pain medication, taken every 6 hrs. I am looking for someone who can also monitor Vital signs if necessary, (Blood pressure, Pulse ox meter) She has the equipment to monitor her vitals and would only need it done if she has symptoms. It may go to less days if her health and well being dictate the reduction.
