About who needs care: Veteran with dementia. Needs help with getting meals (he likes to eat out, and money will be left for the aide to eat as well). Reminders to take meds morning and evening. He is bladder and bowel incontinent, and will need "bathroom reminders" as well as possibly helping him change clothes, change bed linens, and do laundry. He likes music and watching tv.
About the care needs: He likes a friendly person, who will engage him and talk, but not be too talkative. Must know how to deal with Alzheimer/Dementia patients. He can sometimes be confused about time orientation. He will play games like checkers or cards if someone else initiates.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
