About who needs care: He is an alcoholic. Poorly nourished and frail. Refuses nursing home or to stay with family. He stays in his recliner all day and watches TV or talks on the phone. Needs help with laundry (including bedding), taking out trash, light housekeeping, and errand running. He will only eat fast food. My aunt has been coming every Saturday but needs relief at least every other week. I live out of state.
About the care needs: My dad is pretty quiet. The main thing is that he wouldn't want anyone judging him or telling him to change because he won't. He likes TV. He watches all kinds of documentaries.
