Elder Care Job in Manchester, Connecticut

I'm an
Individual
Good Day, My name is Brian and I'm looking for someone to help care for my 83-year-old mom. I've been told by many people she is a sweet, kind and nice person. She is in relatively good physical shape and health but has some memory issues. She is active doing yoga, zoomba, walks and garden/lawn care. She enjoys puzzles, knitting, and word games. She lives along in a single family home in a nice neighborhood. She still drives, relying heavily on the cars gps navigation. I'm looking for someone to check up on her to see that she's taking her medications, has healthy food for meals, help guide her to prepare her own meals along with possibly preparing meals from scratch, spend time with her doing enjoyable things, be a companion, grocery shop with her and other things. She has high blood pressure and had a mild stroke about 8 years ago. Salt needs to be monitored and restricted along with bad fats. I am very health conscious in my life style (food and physical activity) and would like to find someone that has a nutritional background to help my mom eat well, doing more physical activities, and involved more in social settings (senior center). I would like my mom to continue to do those things that she is able/capable of doing and I don’t want someone doing things for her that she is capable of doing. I’d also like someone to work with her cognitive issues and having a background in that area would be very good. Initially, I’m thinking that I’d like someone to spend 2-3 hours 2-3 times per week. As the need for more help is needed or if someone with a nutritional / food preparing / cognitive help background is chosen, then more hours/days as needed. I’m open to the pay scale and those that can more closely meet the requirements/desires of the position, the higher the pay scale. I look forward to finding that person or persons that can make my moms life happy, healthier, more social, and more full. Thanks!
