I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. My husband is tall with broad chest and very weak legs. He needs help getting up, walking, or push in wheelchair. He needs assistance with going to bathroom, dressing, meals, etc. He likes conversation but not constant talking. He needs do be encouraged to do his PT exercises and will need assistance. My husband is a retired mechanic. He doesn't read books or play cards, but can be encouraged to work on puzzles. Maybe we can find something else he would enjoy that could exercise his brain. He loves western movies and shows on TV. We have a medium size dog that can be crazy at times but settles once she gets to know you.
I just need a break so I can focus a couple hours a day on my health. Ge cant be left alone because he has had falls.
