Seeking care for my husband in his 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness. A little more about my husband: he can be lethargic, grouchy, reserved. I'm looking for someone who is patient, quiet, firm, strong. Husband has progressing dementia and mobility issues as well as incontinence. He needs assistance with walking, bathing, dressing and changing depends and bed linens, as well as meal preparation. He usually can feed himself.
He has very poor short term memory and gets very confused easily. I am 67 and have some health issues of my own and need help caring for him as well as to stay with him when I go to the store, run errands etc.
