Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, mobility assistance. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, nursing experience, support for memory care. Dad has Lewy Body Dementia and his capabilities change frequently. I'm looking for someone who is patient. My dad has Lewy Body Dementia. He is in a confused state most of the time but doesn't realize it. He also can have hallucinations at varying times. He has not been violent. Talking to him and changing the conversation helps. He may need help getting dressed, with the bathroom, helping him with opening and closing things, etc. He is able to feed himself but may need help with things like opening ice cream and putting it into a bowl.
