Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be energetic, pleasant, outgoing, independent. My father has a really positive attitude, he likes to make jokes and will do silly things to make you laugh. He hates putting on the AC and needs to be told to shower (which he can do on his own). He also needs someone to put out a new change clothes for him and remind him to put his wallet, keys and phone in his pocket. If he is resistant in doing those tasks you can call me cause he will listen to me and do what I say needs to be done. He loves going for walks so trips to a local park or walking around the mall would be a treat for him. He gets meals on wheels so checking that food isn't expired or rotting is also needed. My father has 2 cats - one is friendly and the other hides. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, fond of pets. Someone who is patient and has a good sense of humor. Also, can be firm on tasks. Being patient and explaining the importance of the tasks he needs to do is the best way to communicate with him. My father loves nature and flowers. He only gets to go for a walk around the block without anyone and sits outside on the porch a lot. I would love a caregiver to take him to a local park or mall or anything so he can see different things and have fun. His favorite snacks are cookies and ice cream, which I allow for him to have in moderation. I also need someone to take him to doctors appointments. On an appointment day I want someone to make sure he showers, gets dressed and help navigate him to the appointment. I will do all the scheduling, paperwork in advance, etc.
