About who needs care: 72 y. o. male who had a stroke 2 years ago and is paralyzed on the left side and bedridden. Patient has a feeding tube where water and food connect and drip slowly/automatically. Changes and baths are done in the bed and a lift is used to move patient into wheelchair for a change of scenery. Patient is able to speak. Patient sleeps a lot of the day but likes to joke around and talk when awake. The care consists of giving meds at a timely manner, assisting wife with changes and baths, sitting with patient while wife goes to work.
About the care needs: Not easily offended as patient sometimes doesn't have a filter. This is a very old school man who was very hard working and independent up until his massive stroke. His wife (my mom) is very sweet and sensitive and in order to keep paying the bills and running the household, has to continue to work.
We are looking for a quick learner, someone who is reliable and content with just sitting around most of the day. Any help with daily housework is appreciated but not required.
Services needed include: feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
