Seeking care for my father in his 70's. Services needed: meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. A little more about my father: he can be independent. Can be stubborn at times. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong. My father just had a triple bypass and is staying with us during his 6-month post-op. He has an irregular heartbeat, so is at high risk for a stroke during this time. We need someone to watch him during the day while we are at work, just in case he has a stroke or any other emergency so they can call 911.
My father also has diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease. However, he is independent, alert, and mobile, and overall able to care for himself.
The caregiver would mainly keep an eye on him, walk with him around the neighborhood (he needs to walk 4 x a day for at least 15 mins), cook, and do some light housework.
