Seeking care for my husband in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, transportation, light housekeeping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care. A little more about my husband: he can be pleasant, outgoing, independent. He loves to read. He's been taking care of himself for a while but his CHF and memory loss are making that more difficult. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. The connection between caregiver and my husband is most important. My husband needs someone to go with him to walk the dogs and to make sure he is moving around during the day. Also needs someone to walk with him to his Chi Gong class around the corner, remind him to take meds, eat a sandwich, drink water. Occasionally he will need to go to an appointment. Mostly he sits and reads but has gotten very isolated over time; he actually is a very social person.
