About who needs care: Wife had a stroke in 2021. Let arm, hand, leg affected. I am her caregiver -- 24/7 and have been for the past 21/2 yrs. Main concern, she has become a fall risk. Balance is bad now and she has gotten weak. I avoid falling I walk with her and support her at all times. She can mostly dress herself and tend to most personal things. She needs help in the shower. She tries to cook but with one hand -- everything is frustrating! I need help. With everything my responsibility, age and health have made doing all impossible. Ideally, I am looking for a lady who has daytime hours free to care for her mostly just be here when Bonnie needs help. I don't need a babysitter. Just adult caregiver. We have great insurance what would cover this if that's needed.
About the care needs: On personality patience is important, a kind nature is too. My wife has suffered much since the stroke. My heart hurts to know any day could be her last. I need help that will not make living harder. No specialized skills are needed, but a caregiver must speak good English and be totally trustworthy! On specific interests... educated and mentally alert. If my wife needs help, be alert (i. e. stroke symptoms) and act quickly. I saved her the first time; got her to Houston in less than an hour. So, some medical experience would be a plus.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
