Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, pleasant, reserved, independent. Generous to a fault, extremely intelligent man with Parkinson's. He is not mentally incapacitated in any way just due to the Parkinson's it takes him time to form his response. So someone within patience who won't roll their eyes or is easily frustrated. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. Show respect for the person doesn't talk down to them or treat them like a child. Someone that has the experience in understanding what types of behavior manifests from his illness plus the loss of his wife sometimes leaves him depressed and down, so a caregiver that can stay positive when faced with that. Right note my father is completely smile to do so his own adls. I just need more if a companion in the evening to cook a meal and light cleaning edit letting him company and socializing. Overnight I just need someone there in case of an emergency. If you are a student this is a perfect East to do some studying while getting experience in health.
