Seeking care for my father in his 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, pleasant, grouchy, reserved. Sometimes he is grouchy and then he is calm and cool. He is a history buff and a trivia champion. His health has been declining but he has been staying w his sister and she has gotten him looking a lot better, however she unable to care for him any longer, due to her health now.
I don't know if this is what I should do or if a nursing home is better for him. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet, firm, strong. Someone that talks but not too much. Someone who physically strong because he falls sometimes. Someone who generally cares. My dad loves sports, when his team loses he loses his cool most of time. I'm not sure if he has calmed down with that or not. He used to love to shop. He is not really a picky eater, except for tuna he hates tuna.
