Seeking care for my loved one in his 60s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. A little more about my loved one: he can be anxious, reserved. My Uncle is very anxious to begin walking and taking care of himself again, but he is very timid to do so for fear of falling. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. My Uncle's ideal caregiver would be understanding, yet firm enough to help him gain confidence in him self to continue working on physical therapy exercises so he can become more independent. My Uncle is very independent, but after approximately a month stay in rehabilitation and the hospital, his ability to take care of himself has declined, thus resulting in him needing extra help. My family and I work full time, so our ideal caregiver would be available Monday-Friday for a few hours in the morning and afternoon and assist him in bathing, cleaning, and meals, while we are away at work.
