Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: feeding, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, outgoing, independent. Dad has always been an outgoing, charmer with quick wit. He is more concerned with others comfort so it is hard for him to ask for help. He mostly needs assistance in the morning with getting cleaned up for the day, dressed, reminder to check his blood sugar & 1st medication of the day & help with a healthy breakfast. Incontinence issues are daily and a small load of laundry & a mop may be needed. I'm looking for someone who is chatty, firm. You will need a friendly, upbeat personality to keep up with my dad. At times, you may need to be firm since he can be stubborn. :-)I basically need my dad to be as healthy, safe and clean as he can be at 79 years of age. He is overweight and getting around, although he is still able, is very difficult for him. A helping hand first thing in the mid-morning most days of the week is what he needs at this point.
