Seeking care for my father in his 90s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, reserved, independent. He is typically active and busy. Loves to piddle around, but is currently depressed and mainly goes from bed to table sleeping a lot and has no appetite, so ensuring he eats is important. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm. We need someone who can patiently and firmly insist that he eats and moves around. Has current symptoms of bipolar depression, so is very lethargic and mainly wants to sleep.
Says he is weak with no appetite, so eating is a struggle. He will do PT exercises with encouragement and has been going to the rec center regularly. He really wants to stay in his own home in Clemson, but needs assistance.
