Seeking care for my husband in his 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. A little more about my husband: he can be lethargic, pleasant, reserved. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong. Would need to be comfortable with toileting, bed baths/showers, and physically able to assist with mobility. (Using sit-to-stand lift) as well as being familiar working with clients with short term memory loss. Hubby has an anoxic brain injury - his preference is to watch TV, but he needs more of a variety with his activities... working on jig saw puzzles, games, books on tape, help him go for a walk (he has an electric wheelchair) when weather is nice, do physical, cognitive and speech therapy exercises.
