Seeking care for my grandfather in his 90s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandfather: he can be grouchy, reserved, independent. He is independent in the way of wanting to be independent... but he needs a lot more help now. He has difficulty walking, issues with walking. He uses a cane and the house. He is grouchy and happy both. He sometimes remembers, he sometimes lies. He hard of hearing. He likes to tell stories. He watches tv most days. Hard to get him to move around. He is really sweet, to me. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet, strong, outdoorsy. Patient, kind. Interested in engaging my grandpa. Able to get him to drink green juice, care for him with a healthy diet. But sometimes something extra. A treat. Listen to him. My grandpa is not able to walk much. He needs a wheel chair, but it would be good to get him out even in his chair. He lives across the street from a park, but he is proud. I usually try to make it part of what I'm doing. "Oh let's go over her grandpa." He watches tv every day. Or he has a doctors appt. I would like someone that will care for him. Like I do. He needs help with showering, (going to the bathroom sometimes), food prep. Etc.
