About who needs care: My father is just about to turn 80 and he can't get around like he used to, he'll need help in and out of the shower and possibly even help with bathing. He's quite lucid and enjoys a quiet morning with a cup of hot coffee. Usually, he takes a mid morning nap at 12ish and wakes up around 2, someone with sharp wit and a tolerance for ornery old man jokes and sass will find him a pleasure to work with as hes quite cooperative and accepting of his disabilities. He's bound to a wheelchair but he can transfer to and from bed and his chair. biggest holdback wil be his weight as we need someone who can handle a 6'2" 260lb man if he falls or needs help from a seated position. basic housekeeping (linen changing, washing and drying clothes, dishes/ vacuuming, etc.)
About the care needs: Someone fun loving and dedicated, reliable but flexibility is provided for those who warn us of unavailability/conflict. Can't be too afraid to get sassy and let him know whos boss. Just give us a shout and we can test the fit :)
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
