Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: transportation. A little more about my father: he can be anxious. On oxygen and feeding tube. Fairly independent otherwise. Uses walker. Cannot drive. Has rhematoid arthritis so need transport for monthly dr appt. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong. Able to be respectful but firm. Patient is completely NPO 24/7. Cannot have anything by mouth other than lollipops. Does not get out much other than doctor appts. Chronic pain. Can do a lot for himself and should be encouraged to do so. Is a fall risk however. Was used to constant catering until wife died. Has been slowly adjusting to bring more independent.
