Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, nursing experience, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be pleasant, grouchy. He has Alzheimer's but loves to talk to people about his life. He can change from pleasant to grouchy in a second so someone who understand the swings of Alzheimer's is a must. He loves the Bible and will talk to anyone about the Lord - he pastored for many years. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong, fond of pets. Someone who loves to engage even though it can be repetitive, filled with conservative rhetoric but can be kind and loving. My father enjoys talking about his life, he used to be a Baptist pastor so his views have reverted back to a more conservative and modest time. He loves to snack and be sure that everyone is taken care of. He used to play basketball in his youth and was a pretty good player. He likes watching sports and food is always an important part of his day, especially sweets.
