Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: meal preparation, transportation, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be energetic, anxious. 87 years old in a few months. Cognitive impairment, primarily memory loss, anxiety, and depression, although at times he's his old charming, cheerful self. Hard of hearing. I should add that the caregiver would need to offer help also for my mother, who's 87 and is not getting around well, though together they are fairly independent. I'm looking for someone who is patient. Need someone reliable and very patient with Dad's anxiety, memory loss, and hearing loss. And his stories. They've been married 65 years, still in love. They are on a strange schedule. Dad has insomnia, so he's routinely awake till dawn and that affects Mom's ability to sleep. So they sleep in and don't come downstairs until early afternoon. They don't really leave the house unless absolutely necessary. They tire very easily. My sister lives here in Little Rock, but I do not, and I leave town tomorrow.
