Seeking care for my father in his 90s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, pleasant, reserved. He is a very sentimental caring individual who is a retired minister and Pastor and has suffered from the stroke and has right sided weakness. He still tries to be as independent as possible but there are times his age and disability get the best of him. He's very loving and kind but when he tried to speak sometimes his words get tangled up and he becomes anxious. He loves to be outside in nature And he is a praying man quiet prayer. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, quiet, strong, fond of pets, outdoorsy. We would like for this particular individual to be caring and attentive to the needs of our father. Also attending to the needs of our mother as she is elderly as well and unable to completely care for my dad as she would like due to her on disability. Be punctual, honest, Respectable, Dependable and ready to do the tasks that are required. Friendly spirit and attitude and very compassionate. My dad enjoys watching Christian TV programs sitting outside on the back porch in the outdoors watching the birds and the animals and he likes to visit.
He and our mother have been married for 62 years. They don't want to be separated.
