Seeking Full-time Senior Care Provider In Lake Bluff

Full Time
Seeking care for my grandfather in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. A little more about my grandfather: he can be pleasant, grouchy, outgoing, independent. He kept working until he was 83 I'm sure, and he's now 85. Within 2 years he has lost his wife, son, daughter and his daughters boyfriend of 16 years.. I, too. Gramp is still driving, although blind in one eye. Lost sense of smell a while ago. Has incontinence, but does not acknowledge and hates people doing his laundry.. He has had heart problems in the past along with a stroke. I'm unnerved to have him live alone after such tragedies and heart ache. He also is showing early signs of dementia / alzheimers. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. Needs to be patient and understanding of his situation as mentioned. He sometimes becomes forgetful, sometimes snarky due to his becoming of age. Someone to be well versed, caring, understanding most importantly. I don't mind if you're new, I just need to trust you'll keep my only surviving relative going until I can move him to Colorado with me. My grandfather is pretty self sufficient, although he needs to learn to let people help more... He shouldn't be driving, but still is. I'd love if someone could ensure he eats at least once a day, as my grandma and mother always kept food on the table for him.. He had a knee replacement and frequently uses a walker. I'm looking for someone to check in at least once or twice a day, maybe do light shopping if needed.. And most of all be a good friend for the confused old guy. He's my hero, and who I've always looked up to.. I can't lost him too, yet...
