About who needs care: My dad has a diagnosis of Multiple System Atrophy. Its is a neurological disorder that affects mobility, swallowing, speech and use of extremities. He likes to watch tv, play board games, do puzzles, and eat. In the mornings after he wakes up, we take his vitals, he then eats breakfast, then depending on if its a shower day or not, he will take his morning meds, watch tv.
About the care needs: Someone who is kind, compassionate, patient, and can make sure he is following the procedures given by the doctors.
They will need to know how to take vitals, know what is normal for him, watch out for any difference in his health and take him/contact his doctor if anything changes.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
