I'm looking for live-in (preferred) or daily in-home care for my 73-year-old mother. She has MS (which affects her legs) and is currently in bed 100% of the time. My dad had been helping her with daily tasks, but he recently passed away unexpectedly. Excela provides part time assistance right now and we need to supplement that 7 days a week. Live-in caregiving would be ideal - we have a private room and bathroom available with its own entrance that could be provided to a caregiver. Tasks would include: Bathing in bed, changing clothes, emptying catheter, changing brief/diaper, preparing food and bringing it to her, bringing her toothbrush and hairbrush, doing laundry, light housekeeping (run the vacuum, wash dishes, dust, etc), go to the grocery store when needed, taking out the garbage, and other general tasks. An ideal caregiver would be personable/social, reliable, and take appropriate precautions for COVID (wear a mask, sanitize, etc). My mother is 100% mentally competent and enjoys spending time with others.
