About who needs care: My father is a fall risk and incontinent. He periodically needs a catheter. My mother is completely physically fit/capable but has Alzheimer's. She is extremely happy and sweet though. We are looking for someone to care for my dad only at this time (my mom is in a home) but would be interested in having them both at home again if possible since my dad really misses her. They live in a big house with plenty of room for caregiver family members and/or gentle pets to live there as well. 3 1/2 baths & additional upstairs apartment kitchen. They have a large wooded lot and long driveway with a very safe street for taking walks or bike rides. Caregiver could take time off whenever necessary but we would like for them to coordinate someone kind, safe and competent to fill in for them during those times.
About the care needs: Someone with an going and happy personality would work best with dad even though he is very quiet. He loves being around people who make him laugh. He loves watching baseball on tv and sitting outside. He will sit outside from sunup to sundown sometimes. He goes to bed at about 7 p.m. and gets up at about 8 a.m. He gets up to go to the bathroom during the night so we would provide a bed alarm and security camera in his room for the caregiver to monitor to see if he needs help or not so that they don't feel like they have to listen for him and run in there every time.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
