About who needs care: Recovering from hospital and rehabilitation stay; currently home-bound, but receiving in-home PT and OT to regain strength, uses a wheelchair and/or walker and needs assistance with transfers and toileting.
He is avid sports fan, loves everything related to Ireland, enjoys reading and watching tv, especially mysteries, enjoys art and sculpture.
His ideal day would be sleeping late (until after 9 am), leisurely breakfast, scrolling on the internet to catch up on news, phone chats or visits with friends, hoping to become more mobile in the days and weeks ahead.
About the care needs: We would ideally like an enthusiastic, out-going caregiver who will encourage him to do his exercises to speed his recovery and become more active; a cheerleader!
The caregiver should be able to stand by and assist in transfers and toileting and strong enough to support him if he loses his balance.
If the caregiver also has an interest in sports, Ireland , or art, that would be a bonus
Services needed include: mobility assistance.
