Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic. 85 to widower with three cats. Is trying to remain independent in his own residence. Otherwise he will need assisted living. He has been driving, eating out and preparing simple meals at home. He is getting more unsteady ( uses cane, walker for balance) and more forgetful. We are seeking increasing assistance as the needs increase. I'm looking for someone who is patient, fond of pets. He loves to sit on the porch and chat with neighbors. He has felt more lonely during these winter months. He loves his cats but could use some assistance in their care. He enjoys eating out and driving around the community.
