Seeking care for my father in his 90s. Services needed: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, medication prompting, mobility assistance, help staying physically active. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, grouchy, reserved. Post surgical 2 broken hips and severe degeneration of low back.
After 2 surgeries and 3 weeks rehab after each hospitalization he is basically an invalid, unable to assist in his own care. Before 1 broken hip he was living alone, driving, going up and down stairs at his home. Driving himself to Drs and taking care of himself. Mid May he fell and broke his hip and his life completely changed. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong, fond of pets. Must like Baseball and be able to read between the lines of my dads "everything is fine and good " attitude when it is not. He is not a good source of information in regards with his health, Drs, medication. My dad likes watching Baseball on TV, getting a coffee going out on his patio and his backyard. He needs to get up and walk if ever possible.
