Companion Care Needed For My Father - My dad, Simon, has been in...

Full Time $8 – 22/hr Starts 09/17 Reading, PA
About who needs care: My dad, Simon, has been in and out of the hospital, but when he gets discharged, I am looking for someone to provide transportation to his post op appointments, help set a routine for him to remember to take his meds and insulin, and maybe provide the occasional meal and other quality of life things. He sometimes has trouble walking and uses either a cane or a walker. But he is in good spirits, but could use the help when I am not home while working. Setting him up with a routine is desirable. He is a little bit on the introverted side, but can open up quickly when you get to know him. He has Acute Kidney disease meaning that he needs to be on a strict diet of low sodium, potassium and phosphorous. No heavy carbs either and a fluid restriction of less than 2000 ml. He also has had a history of chronic heart failure and hematuria. It's a lengthy list, but just something to keep in mind. About the care needs: I'm looking for someone who can be patient with my father. He can be stubborn at times because he's set in his ways, but with a little bit of persuasion and convincing, he can follow directions. Also, the occasional walking assistance, but he should be encouraged to be mobile to strengthen his mobility. Also to engage in conversation about anything, like traveling, Asian food, shows, the news, or even a simple joke. Basically someone who is a good communicator. Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, and light housekeeping.
