About who needs care: My dad is looking for someone to do light cooking, lighthouse cleaning, opening the mail, take him to the store once a week and other errands if needed. My dad is unable to see very well and needs someone to read him his mail, help pay his bills, help him send birthday cards and letters to family and friends.
About the care needs: My Dad is a Christian and a former preacher. He was also a nutrition specialist and enjoys teaching others about good nutrition and how to eat healthy. He is a veteran - he was in the army for 8 years. He is now a service connected disabled veteran.
A good fit for my dad would be someone who is patient and open to hearing how he likes things to be done. Also, someone who isn't easily upset if my dad gets aggravated (I recently visited him and helped him with his everyday tasks - well, he got upset because I wasn't doing it the way he wanted me to. I just listened to him explained that I would catch on to how he likes things done). As quickly as my dad gets aggravated, he quickly calms down, as long as your personality gives you the ability to be understanding and patient without taking the situation too seriously.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, and light housekeeping.
