Seeking care for my grandfather in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandfather: he can be energetic, pleasant, outgoing, independent. My grandfather is a wonderful, outgoing and active 85-year-old man. He suffered from multiple strokes between June-July 2019. The strokes have left him with aphasia and cognitive planning issue but he is mobile and in great physical shape. Prior to his stroke he was completely independent, driving and all. At times he gets upset while coping with his new circumstances and restraints. He lives with my 83-year-old grandmother. She is quite self sufficient despite some mobility restrictions. She needs help in caring for my grandfather while they adjust to their new circumstances. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong. My grandparents have always been very independent people. They can be persistent on still doing things that they physically are not capable of doing. The ideal care taker would be someone who is sensitive to this fact and would help my grandparents adjust to receiving such personal care. Someone who can be kind but firm. For example my grandmother at times will insist on helping my grandfather get dressed and refuses the caretakers help, even though it is quite difficult for her. Ideally, the caretaker would step in and say something like "Thank you Mrs. T but I will be getting him dressed, it is my job and I am happy to do it. Why don't you go get breakfast started and we'll be down shortly?" A proactive take-charge care giver is what's needed rather than someone with a more passive approach. My grandpa likes going for walks, to the supermarket and running errands. He does have speech and physical therapy 3 times a week so he would need to be driven and escorted to those appointments.
