About who needs care: My papa is beginning to have memory issues (history of dementia in the family) and has fallen three times in the last month. He needs someone to sit with him and help him make breakfast and lunch and get around. He likes to watch the birds and drink his coffee first thing in the morning. He prefers a sandwich or a protein for lunch with chips or pretzels of some sort. He LOVES fresh fruit but has to be careful with natural sugars as he us diabetic. Papa gets up has coffee and watches the birds, and then heads to his chair to watch the news and t. v. for the morning. He will sometimes go sit in the yard or walk around the wood shed to potter around. Then back to the recliner for sitting and watch drama.
About the care needs: Someone who is bubbly, caring, kind, and soft spoken. I want someone who is going to take care of my papa at the level I would. Papa likes to talk about his time in the military and my Meamal. I want someone who will enjoy sitting and talking and sitting in silence. I'm looking for someone I trust.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.
