We need companion care to take care of my father in Excelsior Springs. Meal Preparation: Preparing or warming up dinner. Feeding: Sometimes needs help navigating spoon to his mouth. Bathing / Dressing: Undressing (pants, shoes/socks) at bedtime, putting on pull up. Light Housekeeping: Cleaning up after yourselves, keeping house clean, as needed, when time. Medication Management: Making sure he takes his pills from organized bottle at supper. Companionship: Visiting, asking questions about life or whatever. Schedule Details: We have 24-hour care for my dad, so schedule and hours are flexible, but want to lock in someone with the availability to work the same hours weekly. Would like to fill a Tuesday & Thursday shift from 3 p.m. overnight until 7 a.m. (16 hours), but those days can change to any two during the week or weekend. Has Lewy body dementia (type of Parkinson's). Functions pretty well most of the time, but sometimes has hallucinations and thinks he's somewhere else, so needs help finding restroom, etc. Uses walker well but may need a little assistance getting up out of chair. Never aggressive, super easy to take care of, we just need someone with him all the time to do the periodic hallucinations.
