Someone With A Good Heart That Is Nurturing That Can Help Care For A Sweet Elderly Woman With Dementia. — Archived

Family in Marion

I am looking for someone that is loving, kind, nurturing and capable of helping my mother in law for about 4 or 5 hours a day Monday through Friday. Preferably someone with experience with dementia and alzheimers. My mother in law is really sweet but confused and stricken with dementia. She used to be a beautiful woman who was meticulous about her appearance and it's so sad to see her in this state. My father in law has been her sole care giver for the last 2-3 years and he is so exhausted it almost killed him this week. He has really bad knees and it has been really hard for him to keep up with laundry, cooking, grocery shopping etc. He just kinda gave up the last 3-4 weeks. He has kept the true state of affairs from us until now. We finally convinced him to get some help. We need someone to come in and make sure Mary ann gets cleaned up bathed and dressed with a fresh set of clothes. Does some grocery shopping and prepares some meals, does some laundry and light housekeeping. Takes Mary ann for a walk or to the hair dressers that she used to go to every Thursday for the last 50 years. She loves the movies and the entertainment business so maybe a movie every once in a while. She loves to play cards as well. In Mary Anns' later years she went back to being a full time English teacher. She used to be a top notch crossword puzzler and had a great mind so its sad to see her lose all of that but she still retains her sweetness. We really need someone as soon as possible.
