About the care needs: Skils - Someone who can maybe check his vitals every few days.
Dad is VERY independent and is resisting this as many do I believe. Someone who will NOT dote on him. He likes to do things himself. So someone who will not make him feel like he can't do things on his own. And being on the right side of politics would go a long way. Not that they have to talk politics with him but again he watches this stuff on and off all day and night. He is an intelligent, VERY stubborn man, old fashioned, well he is 95, to be 96 om April26.
