Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, nursing experience, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be pleasant, reserved, independent. My dad is very sweet, but like many seniors, he is leery of new people. He is kind, but does not talk much for fear his will not make sense. He likes to engage in thoughtful conversation and does his best to fight his dementia. I'm looking for someone who is patient, outdoorsy. My ideal caregiver would be energetic, engage with my dad, and encourage him to get out of the house when the weather permits. He or she would assist with light housekeeping and would warm his meals for him. My dad likes to read, tries to play piano, and he is trying to pick up Spanish language.
