About who needs care: Walks with a cane. Trouble walking due to mini-stroke years ago. Cognitively fine. Likes to keep busy, but will nap in late afternoon if he over-extends himself.
Could use help with errands, housekeeping, organization, etc. He still drives, but there are days when he's not as energetic as others.
About the care needs: He doesn't do well with taking orders as he can be very stubborn and won't respond well to a strong personality. If the caregiver can accomplish getting him to do certain things by taking a subtle approach, s/he will be more successful.
Matt likes playing the game Sequence. He became a widower in 2015 and misses his wife very much. He's lonely. Family cannot be with him 24/7, so having a part-time caregiver would be helpful.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, and light housekeeping.
