Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. Male caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, reserved. Father is stubborn and won't disclose truth unless he trusts caregiver. He will tell you everything is fine and he doesn't need help. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, strong, fond of pets. Able to present / offer care, and not insist or be pushy. Father may be very resistant, and will need to develop trust in caregiver. Father is an automobile buff and ex military. He is a trained sniper, pilot, and worked as instructor .
He has had military secret clearance, and we believe some depression and obsessive/ compulsive disorder as a result of his experiences.
He is extremely intelligent and has a secretive, cunning nature. He's very self centered but at the same time charming...
On the other hand, he does have a good sense of humor and is very good with animals ( cats and dogs).
