My amazing 93-year-old father, Donald is in need of the next level of care. He currently has a fantastic daytime companion and caregiver, but we feel it would be best to expand that to someone who can provide overnight care for him, someone who is kind, caring and capable.
Lately, evenings have been harder for him, as he recently had a muscle strain in his back and he struggles to get in and out of bed without experiencing significant pain. He is having PT for that. More importantly though, he would feel more secure knowing someone was there if he needed them. We have a Lifeline system in place, but nothing compares to the peace of mind that a live-in companion could bring.
He's remarkable. He is sharp as a tack. He reads books and the newspaper every day. He watches the news and welcomes a lively discussion.
