About who needs care: My dad is 93, and would like to remain in his home as he ages. At this point, he needs help with planning for meals.. ie on Wednesday, cooking for two meals, when he would eat one on Wednesday, and the caregiver would plate and refrigerate a meal to be microwaved on Thursday by my dad... the caregiver would need to do an inventory of my dads food, to prepare what to buy on Monday, in order to cook double meals on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. My dad would need to be taken shopping for food as he does not drive now. Also, I would want the person to check that my dad is preparing his meds, and taking them properly.
