Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. A little more about my father: he can be pleasant, reserved, independent. My father has cancer throughout his body, and is on hospice. He mostly needs someone for company and to help family take breaks. He has bilateral kidney tubes which have to be flushed, bags emptied, and bandages changed. The nurse or daughters will mostly handle these duties, however the caregiver should be trainable. He is bed bound and uses a bed pan. With assistance he can transfer to a chair but rarely likes to due to the pain in his back. His hobbies use to be gardening, crafts, working on cars and cooking. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet. My dad enjoys company, however he has lived alone for many years so the caregiver needs to understand he may sometimes want some time to himself. Needs to be Friendly, kind, respectful, honest, and encouraging. He is bed bound so he does watch a lot of TV. He loves Cops, live PD, and cooking shows. Will play connect four, checkers, and cards when he has the energy.
