About who needs care: high blood pressure, physical fragility, and some age related cognitive decline. My dad is very social, witty, and outgoing. He likes sports, old Westerns, and crossword puzzles. At 90 he can do crosswords in about 20 minutes! We need someone to just be with him while my wife and I are at work. He doesn't need much, just some companionship, and someone to make sure he doesn't accidentally hurt himself, and to call EMS if he does get hurt.
About the care needs: Outgoing personality, excellent communication skills (my dad wears hearing aids and requires loud clear speech).
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.
