Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, feeding, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience. Male caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be lethargic, grouchy. Had a stroke in 2014, left him blind in left eye. Had a minor stroke earlier this year leaving him with no hand control in his right hand. He is very dependent and stays in bed most of the day. Looking for someone to work with him to build strength to be able to stand and walk again. He was walking 1 year ago. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong. My mom lives with my dad and does her best to take care of him, but she is physically not strong enough to be able to provide the care my dad needs. Need a very strong male to be able to lift him and work with him to build strength and sit up during the day in his wheel chair and try to work on movement with him.
