Seeking care for my father in his 40s. Services needed: meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, pleasant, grouchy, independent. He's a good man with a lot on his mind. He's a little worried about the aftermath of the car accident and how to adjust. He's into mechanical and engineering and the operations of anything with an engine. Incredibly intelligent and a high spirited, independent soul. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet, firm, strong. I would like someone to not only help him as a caregiver but also someone that can stay firm with him as he will have difficulty with adjusting to being semi independent. My father will have to come to terms with the new obstacles he will face and I want to be the one to help him as best I can. But I simply cannot afford to monitor him myself. I'm looking into in-home care and a long term care facility. He is just now again starting to walk with assistance. The Acute Care Facility he is at is looking to send him home in a much more rushed manner than I had expected.
