Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience. A little more about my father: he can be reserved. Dad is in denial about his medical conditions. Diabetes and heart disease has taken a toll on his physical health, and he has trouble excepting a loss of independence that comes with this. He can be very talkative and friendly, but stubborn about following doctors orders or admitting that he needs help. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. The ideal caregiver for my dad would be empathetic to his situation. She would understand how difficult it is for an older gentleman to admit that he can no longer take care of certain needs totally on his own. My dad needs help bathing and sometimes dressing himself. At times he may require assistance in going to the bathroom. He is mentally alert But has mobility issues, difficulty walking and getting around.
