Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be grouchy, reserved. My dad is 86 years old. He just recently had both his legs amputated. He has a caring, supporting & loving family who loves him very much. Before this, he was active & very independent. He was still able to drive himself to visit family & get out daily. This has been a rough year for both him & his wife. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong, fond of pets. Someone who genuinely care about people and passionate about what she does. She must have tough skin & be firm at the same time. He had 2 surgeries, one in May & one in July. My dad will be released next week from rehab. He is having a ROUGH time adjusting to this new lifestyle. Some days he pushes thru the day and other days he doesn't want to be bothered with anyone. Most days he lays in bed all day. His appetite is getting much better. On a normal day, he would start his day out by reading the local newspaper, watch the news, then take his daily ride out and come back b/f the traffic gets heavy. It's ALL new for him, his wife & the entire family. We are all still processing this.
