Thank you for taking the time to read this job.
We seek a hands-on care provider for my father (86) about 3 days/week. He needs physical help while healing from back surgery. Dad is not obese, but large, and it is very important that someone is strong enough to assist with tasks such as bathing or getting in and out of bed. Dad is fine cognitively and can be humorous. He enjoys watching TV, reading, and listening to the radio, and social interaction is a plus. Daily activities, assistance with medication, preparing a meal may also be needed. Light housekeeping is required (Though a housekeeper comes at least once a month.). Sometimes you may need to let the dog out or take the dog for a short 15-minute walk.
