Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant, outgoing. Both parents have chronic heart failure and copd but dad is more advanced than mom. I need someone trustworthy with them so I don't need to worry about them while I work. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong. Someone who is knowledgeable about respiratory distress and it's related effects. A person who will enjoy engaging in conversation when they are up for it but is happy to be quiet and get on with other work when they need to rest or sleep.
