About who needs care: My husband had a devastating stroke on October 1, 2021. He has been at home since January 5, 2022, and while he is making some progress, continues to need care so that I can go to work. He requires help with transfers, transportation to outpatient rehab 2xs a week, help with meals, help with showering, etc. He is getting better, but can be impulsive and needs to be reminded of safety. On days that he is not at rehab, his ideal day would include breakfast, a shower, some type of activity, lunch, another activity (crossword, reading, being outside, going to the store, etc), tv, and a nap.
About the care needs: We do not require a certified nurse, but we would love to find someone that has worked with stroke patients in the past. My husband can be quite laid back and can go through moments where he is not motivated, so he could use someone who gently pushes him to try new things. He really loves to watch all kinds of movies, watch tv and listen to music.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
