We need live-in home care to take care of my father-in-law in Ronkonkoma. Dad lives in a clean, bright, three bedroom, two full bathroom ranch home, large fenced-in yard. Assistance with medication is needed. Housekeeping is involved (I will do the heavy work). Some help needed with bathing. Seeking someone to handle meal preparation. We also sometimes prepare meals and bring them over. Preferences for a caregiver who is comfortable with pets. Dad has a small, well-behaved dog. Dad is a smoker, so smokers welcome. We will handle doctor appointments and outings. Dad has dementia but is ambulatory. His main symptom is no short-term memory. He tends to watch TV most of the day. We're flexible as far as choice of days with two days off.
