About who needs care: 85yr old male with diabetes and partial foot amputation.
Enjoys doing yard work and feeding the wildlife in the yard but can't any more due to recent foot surgeries. He is stubborn and won't stay off his foot when he is left unsupervised. He takes lots of naps these days. He doesn't enjoy reading or watching tv much any more, but that could be due to worsening eye sight.
He gets up, has breakfast, sits on the porch in the sunshine. piddles around doing things on his foot until someone fusses at him, then he takes a nap. Lunch and dinner usually go the same way.
About the care needs: Caregiver would need to be patient. An interest in wildlife, kayaking, model A cars would be a bonus but not a must.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
