About who needs care: My Dad lives in an independent living community and can manage pretty well on his own. But, as he gets older, he needs some help setting up his pills, keeping track of appointments, occasional help with his cellphone, maybe walking with him to the grocery store that sort of thing. I am thinking 2-3 mornings a week for 2-3 hours each time would be great. The hours are very flexible.
About the care needs: Patience is key of course. He jokes around a lot so a sense of humor. He uses a bi pap machine so if you can do simple things with that (eg put in a new filter or fill it with water) that would be great.
Services needed include: errands / shopping, medication set up, help with schedule, and companionship.
