I'm looking for hands-on care for my loved one in their 70s. Meal Preparation: Minimum cooking; eats sandwich for lunch, may have to cook breakfast depending on schedule. Bathing / Dressing: Clean up when soiled, assist with dressing; cannot dress lower body. Light Housekeeping: Keep his room tidy. Companionship: Loves watching older TV shows, watching or discussing, loves Clemson football. Schedule Details: I need to attend Cardiac Rehab and need coverage for my brother who has advanced dementia and diabetes. I will try to arrange early to mid morning appointments, but unable to let you know how many days a week it will be until after my first appointment on 2/17/20. I have coverage for this day only. If this arrangement works out, I may have additional hours occasionally for respite care. My brother has limited ROM, frequent pain from arthritis, requires lots of encouragement during activities. Can ambulate up to about 30 feet with walker and supervision. Frequently becomes obsessed with picking at his skin, or scabs. Wears pull-ups due to incontinence; he doesn't always realizes when he needs to urinate, but when he does he uses BSC. We have a walk-in shower which he can access with lots of encouragement and supervision. Must assist with bathing when needed. Most of this can be discussed further with interview. Preferences for a caregiver who is a non-smoker and comfortable with pets.
