About who needs care: My Uncle suffered a stroke almost 3 years ago. His right side was very much affected and he now struggles with mobility.
His significant other is taking care of him as best she can but she works a full time job and is unable to give him the constant care and support he needs.
He is bed ridden at the moment so he is seeing a PT and OT, which require him to sit up every couple hours for 2 hours at a time. He was in the hospital about a month ago but left due to inactivity which caused him to have bed soars.
A caretaker would be needed to feed him breakfast, lunch and dinner, let personnel into the house when needed, help the nurse walk him to the shower, help sit him up every couple hours, change his diaper and catheter when needed, do the exercises required by the PT/OT and help him exercise his brain with games and or conversation.
He is also heavy set so a strong caretaker is required.
About the care needs: We are looking for a caring yet strong caretaker, both physically and mentally. My Uncle needs someone who can positively push him as he can sometimes be a bit stubborn.
Services needed include: companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
