Seeking care for my father in his 90s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. 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 pleasant. 91 years old, lost sight in his right eye from a mini stroke, needs help dressing in the morning, moves around with help of a roll after although sometimes he has to sit on it, has good days and bad days. We have a nurse who comes on mondays to check his vitals . He's a nice man, frustrated at his deteriorating health. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm. Person should honestly care about getting to know him and be positive about life and his great sense of humor. Person should not be bossy, but enjoy taking care of him. My mom and dad have been together since their 20's it's time for me to go back to work, and my mom cannot take care of him . He needs help going to the bathroom, and I try to give him a shower once a week if he feels strong enough or else I would wipe him down with bath wipes.
