Seeking care for my father in his 80s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, light housekeeping. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, pleasant, reserved. Retired psychiatrist, dealing with terminal cancer but not in hospice. Needs someone there to make sure he eats high calorie foods and drinks sufficient water. Available in case of falls or if he needs help around the house, go for short walks. I'm looking for someone who is patient. Someone comfortable with the elderly, likes to cook vegetarian meals, boosting calories. Ok with down time and just being available. Best if we can find someone with limited contact with others due to risk of Covid19.
My dad used to love to travel, likes to be outside, enjoys birds and wildlife. Independent with cares.
My brothers and I have been sharing living with him since March. We need to move out of his house in Sanibel island, so need someone with him while we're gone and for 1-2 weeks after we get back so we can self quarantine before moving back in with him.
