About who needs care: I like to go to the YMCA 3 days per week and do lite exercise to strengthen my legs and arms. I'm a retired chef so I just need a little help with meal prep. I also have Meals delivered bi-weekly, I purchase pre-made salads and meals from my local store. I mainly need detailed light cleaning and companionship I also need help in the shower with legs and back. I have a little tiny 7 pound dog named Yogi he is a true gentleman and very protective of me. But a non issue really. I'm 67 years young and I was in a head on collision with a semi truck roughly 7 years ago that is why I need help. Thank you.
About the care needs: The person that works for me should be warm and friendly and enjoy going and doing things. This person should either own a van or sub to make my getting in and out easier. I prefer a female caregiver to a male, this candidate should love to cook and be at least over 40 with a great work ethic, neat, and tidy. They should treat my house as if it were theirs. I supply a notebook with detailed daily tasks so to facilitate the training process. Like I stated I'm a retired chef of over 35 years and a former Marine, hence the notebook for the daily tasks we had a rule in my kitchens if it's not written down it doesn't exist, communication right. I don't mean to come off as a difficult person to work with nothing could be further from the truth. I've been told by most folks that I'm a joy to be around. The reason for me searching you out is I've just grown so tired of the caregivers of lately, I had one caregiver she was with me for 2-2.5 years, her husband was in the Navy stationed at Great Lakes but then he got transferred to California, that was a sad day for me. Then I went through like 3-4 caregivers and finally I changed companies, I got a young man, he was awesome lasted a bit over a year and he went through a bad divorce and ended not doing caregivers anymore. Went through a bunch of bad caregivers who stole from me it was terrible. Then, my caseworker found a company, they found me a great girl, she was with me year and a half and she moved and now about the last almost year I've had nothing but terrible experiences from thieves to being propositioned by a young black caregiver to people that just don't show up to work. I need good, reliable, honest caregivers to apply to help me. Please I'm asking you folks to help me find that right person I know she's out there.
