Job description

We are in search of a considerate, friendly and capable caregiver who will be attentive to our mother's needs. She is located in East Meadow, NY. Assistance is needed approx. 6 days per week, and a live-in caregiver is preferred. The primary duties of this caregiver will include: bathing, managing medications, meal prep, and housekeeping. Being a Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) is a definite plus. Although my mother does not need help toileting, she sometimes experiences incontinence. Otherwise, she is pretty independent! Please apply asap if you are interested.

About this Care Recipient

Our mother is a youthful 90 yr old, in pretty good shape overall and very friendly and lively, spending most of her time at the computer working on her poetry. She uses a walker, has some vision issues and a little trouble with her hearing. Her memory is fair/good - so she can be a bit forgetful at times. Although my mother is very independent, it is helpful to remind her about things. She dresses and grooms herself and helps to prepare her own breakfast. My mother's current caregiver needs to move locations as of December 31, 2017. She has been receiving room and board in addition to some financial reimbursement for her services. Ideally, we are seeking the same or similar situation once again - a caregiver who would live with my mother full time, beginning on January 1st or so, 2018.
