Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 7+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant, grouchy. Jim likes to think he is still independent although his health now requires him to have more care than he would like. He is super friendly and amazing but can be a grouch when he feels uncomfortable and needs help. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong, fond of pets. Our father has a great sense of humor and loves to chat, although he enjoys his tv time as well. Our caregiver would have to help with toileting, potential accident clean up and ventilator help. This is used through a tracheotomy collar that our father had had for over 20 years. Our father has been independently living prior to moving into a home with my sister in 2017. He has many new health issues to include: congestive heart failure, pace maker, COPD, diabetes and recently incontinence. He has lived with his tracheostomy for the past 20 years but will now need help with care and maintenance of this. He is going to be required to use a ventilator for evening sleeping to maintain his oxygen levels.
