Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. A little more about my father: he can be pleasant. He is upset that his body is failing him. He is bed bound. Has post polio, CHF, HTN, catheter. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, firm, strong. He is very lonely. He loves to talk about everything and anything. Enjoys sports westerns. He is a strong man. He forgets that he needs help. He is lonely and loves having someone to watch tv with. We lost my mom 2 years ago. He has some cognitive impairment so he forgets. I constantly have to remind him that mom is no longer alive.
He's rather easy as long as he has company. He is bed bound so we need bed baths grooming set up. Empty catheter and diaper changes when needed.
We would like someone that feels like family.
