About who needs care: He has dementia. He likes to read (sometimes). No hobbies. His day consists of rising about 9 a.m. , having coffee, reads the newspaper (sometimes). He doesn't require a lot of hands-on care. Just need someone to sit with him while I out of the house. I don't want to leave him alone due to fear of falling, etc.
About the care needs: He like to just sit/nap. He is able to take care of his personal care needs although he needs a little help sometimes remembering where the bathroom. If someone is able to help him up IF he falls or can dial 911 if necessary. I just don't feel comfortable leaving him alone. He is a very quiet, subdued individual. If a caregiver wants to bring reading material, knitting, etc with them, I have no problem with it. Like I said, just someone to hang out with him while I am out of the house.
Services needed include: companionship.
