Seeking care for my father in his 60's. Services needed: meal preparation, help staying physically active, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, grouchy. Has congestive heart failure, had multiple organ failure about a year ago and is up and down with his health.
His oxygen levels are intermittent, he can't walk a lot and his strength is very limited. My mom is in the early stages of dementia and can't help. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, firm, strong. My dad is pretty crabby at times but has always been a positive and outgoing guy. When he isn't feeling well, he's more crabby. He'd probably enjoy someone who is knowledgeable and could talk to him. My mom has ovarian cancer and early stages of dementia. She's not in the right mind frame to care for either one of them. Would love someone to help out a little running errands, cleaning a bit, maybe cooking for them and checking on them.
