Hands-on Care Needed For My Grandfather - He is a healthy 97-yea...

Full Time $18 – 22/hr Starts 01/28 Sacramento, CA
About who needs care: He is a healthy 97-year-old who is no longer ambulatory after he got COVID and was in the hospital last July. He was on Hospice for 6 months but then they kicked him off because he's too healthy. He is legally blind but can see a little, and his hearing is very limited. He's now finally receiving PT again to try to strengthen his legs (which Hospice wouldn't do). He loves to play Cribbage. He loves to go for walks in the neighborhood in his wheelchair. He loves to interact with people. He is very intelligent; a retired school principal and WWII veteran. My 88-year-old mom has been his caregiver since before COVID but is unable to provide for all his needs now, such as transferring from bed to wheelchair, bathing, changing, etc. She has a caregiver now who comes 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-8 p.m. , and that would be the schedule they'd need for someone new, ideally, a team of several to take on the different days/shifts. The caregiver also needs to do laundry, prepare meals and do dishes (there's a dishwasher), and do some light housekeeping. About the care needs: A pleasant and easy-going personality would be good, and getting along with both my stepdad and my mom. Current caregiver gets along with my stepdad but not with my mom, which creates a tense environment; he gets angry and offended when my mom tries to help my stepdad with anything while he's there, or make any kind of suggestion with regard to her husband. Experience and professional skill are also key; Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
