About who needs care: My father, Jim suffered a TBI on July 2nd, 2023. He is pretty self sufficient, can cook, do light house work, get dressed, shower, etc. He is currently doing speech therapy and physical therapy and would need someone to drive him to his appointments and take him home after. He will also need assistance with helping him make a list of groceries and driving to the grocery store from time to time. He needs someone to help him stay on top of his "homework" at home from his speech therapist. He needs a little guidance to get him started on his homework or else he won't do it on his own. We also need to make sure he takes his medication regularly in the mornings. I usually put them out in a small bowl and leave him a note to tell him to take them in the morning.
My dad loves to go on walks and loves to run in his neighborhood. He love to go to the Park and practice his putting and hitting some golfballs out in the driving range :)
About the care needs: Someone who is calm, kind and understanding. Preferably would love to have someone who knows about TBI and can help assist him in activities to keep his brain going.
Services needed include: transportation, and companionship.
