About who needs care: Our Dad has Alzheimer's, he's stroke survivor with reduced mobility although he's still able to walk and eat by himself. He likes to be outside and go for rides in the car to enjoy the scenery. He likes his cats and watching old western movies. We're looking for someone to help our mom who is currently doing all the care herself in addition to working the night shift in order to pay the bills. As they both age and as his mental condition deteriorates, the workload for her is becoming too much.
About the care needs: Our Dad is a calm man of few words, and even more so now that he has trouble finding them due to the Alzheimer's. Even so, he likes to listen and appreciates a good joke. Someone calm, patient and down to earth with a good sense of humor would suit him well. Someone who likes to be outside in the fresh air would also be good.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
