Seeking care for my husband in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. A little more about my husband: he can be lethargic, grouchy, independent. He has a neurological condition that affects his gait, memory, and causes incontinence. He is a retired doctor so he appreciates someone who is educated. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong. Experienced, not easily offended, republican if possible, respectful of seniors and those in authority but strong enough to hold their own. Not bossy or defensive. He needs encouragement to get out of the house or to get out on the deck, to walk a little , to turn off the tv, eat healthier, to engage socially and play cards or use his brain!
He was very successful after working 60 hr weeks for probably 30 years so to see him this way is sad and I feel he has given up.
