Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, feeding, meal preparation, medication prompting, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 5+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, reserved, independent. He's 83 diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years ago. Mobility is affected. Can still get around on his own. Dressing and daily living activities can be done very slowly. Needs help with housework and medicine reminders. I'm looking for someone who is patient, firm, strong. My dad is picky and can be very stubborn. I'd need someone firm but caring and patient. My dad wants to go for walks. He likes grocery shopping but needs help. He's worried about falling and not being able to get up. He needs help but still wants to do everything on his own.
