how to get a quality live in care giver for a salary
My mother 88, fell and broke the bone in her upper right leg, has a rod, plate, & screw. Unfortunately she was not wearing her call button, so, on her back she got herself a good 15 feet to the phone. Took time, strength and possibly caused more damage than the fall.
She has been in nursing home 4 months, is ambulatory w/ a walker, w/ permission to go about unescorted w/ in the building.
I was there last week and we went out to eat everyday. I did bring in salads from home 2 times and Chinese soup once.
My brother is in charge of her estate, and is paying the bills. Our goal is to bring her home w/ a live in care giver. She lives in Woodstock, Illinois. We can pay a fair salary and offer time off for vacation, w/ me going there to take care of her. I am in SW Michigan and have been a care giver for 15 years.
She has her own home, car, a Burmese cat, loves cooking/gardening, she likes to play cards, visit relatives/friends & being out and about. Her mind is good, forgetful when tired or stressed.
Anyone know someone near Woodstock available for live in care, or interested in relocating?
