Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, help staying physically active. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, pleasant, grouchy, independent. His mood varies. Currently living in assisted living in Quincy for last 2 yrs. Like his community but does not actively participate unless it's lunch out or cocktail time downstairs. Little hard of hearing. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong. Good listener, conversational and interested in his achievements, able to manage disruptive attitude when he feels lost or confused. Dad is very engaging during the hours of 10 a.m. to 4PM, but is spending too much time watching TV. Reads his Globe everyday and still makes his own breakfast and coffee.
