About who needs care: My father gets up in the morning around 8:30 a.m. He eats breakfast, and then needs help dressing and bathing in the morning. He spends the majority of his day in his recliner, and needs his meals prepared. He has a catheter that needs to be emptied once in the morning and once before bed. He goes to bed at 10:30 p.m.
About the care needs: My father is an educated, quiet man. He likes to read, watch sports games and nature shows on TV. He prefers solitude, so the caregiver does not need to try to make conversation. My father is very aware and is able to communicate his needs. He has family visit frequently.
