Seeking care for my father in his 90s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be pleasant, grouchy, independent. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. My dad needs someone to remind him to take his meds. Also prepare meals. Occasional drives to get out of the house. We currently have a wonderful visiting angel m-f, 9-noon. I feel he needs a live in or a weekend live in caregiver. My brother lives close by, but is totally burnt out. My dad has a drivers license, but we don't want him driving. My dad is pleasant but can be very grumpy too. My dads memory is not good. He will eat twinkies all day if no one makes him meals. My dad has cancer, but doesn't remember he does. His meds keep him feeling well. I live far away, and can't help now with the virus.
