About who needs care: Not sure what I need yet... but I think help with showering, dressing, take me to PT appt's, and maybe help me get a meal.
I will have a total knee replacement. Since I have no idea what kind of help I need, I am guessing. I may need help straitening up my room, making my bed. I need help the first week after surgery and maybe extend for a 2nd week. We have plenty of parking so no problem there.
About the care needs: I need someone who is kind and encouraging, who won't judge me. Someone who can make suggestions, and who can engage and also be quiet. I need someone to help with standing, maybe dressing, putting on shoes. Maybe help me get to the bathroom until I can do it on my own. Help me set up for ongoing exercises, but they don't need to help me do the exercises., and help me take a shower safely. Someone who will hold me accountable, and help me set up my meds, yet be gentle and kind. I am overweight, but have done all my exercises to prepare for this surgery. I am independent, yet I know I need some help. I am catholic and like to pray so whoever comes needs to respect my faith, I will not try to convert anyone who comes to help me, but I do need some assistance with my recovery. The person also needs to drive me to my PT appointments too... so they need to drive safely. They must embrace other cultures, as I do.
Services needed include: transportation, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
