Light Housekeeping And Mobility Assistance Part-time Support Needed For My Father In Akron, OH.

Part Time $15 – 25/hr Starts 02/17 Akron, OH
Seeking care for my father in his 80s.Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping.Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors.Specialized care needs: nursing experience.Female caregiver preferred.A little more about my father: he can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant, reserved, independent.My Dad is a wonderfully kind and gentle man. He has always been my family's patriarch and has been proud of his independence and the care he always gave to everyone else in my family. Now that he is almost 85, his limitations are very frustrating for him, as is the increase in his dependency on others. His significant other Debbie lives with him but could use an extra hand. I am his son and return monthly from Virginia, but it would be nice if Dad got into a routine with someone he really liked. As my late Mom said, "getting old sux" and anything that would help him feel more confident, safer, happier and healthier would be great. We are seeking someone who would treat him with dignity and compassion. He taught high school for 35 yrs, had a bar for 12 yrs, wrote some books and has always been a great, cool Dad who deserves the best.I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet, fond of pets.Not to sound like a creeper or superficial, but if my Dad could pick anyone, I'm guessing he'd pick someone from the cast of Baywatch lol. He is the kind of person who all the ladies working at the grocery store know. They all think of him fondly because he's so charming & nice. He is humorous and can be a bit slow to open up, especially as he navigates a more challenging chapter of his life. A caregiver who is sensitive and kind and patient and humorous (nice humor, not demeaning) would be ideal. I would love for him to see his caregiver not as a caregiver but a friend with whom he could develop a bond. And I would love for his caregiver to not treat him as someone in need of care as it's honestly the last thing he wants...this is why treating him as the dignified, strong man he's always been would be ideal. He is still that man inside.My Dad now struggles with dressing himself and has mobility issues that are concerning. He is very unsteady when he walks and has fallen a few times. He also snacks a lot but eats when prepared food is in front of him. Someone who likes to cook and cooks well would probably be helpful to both him and his significant other,
