Seeking care for my father in his 80s. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursdays needed: companionship, meal preparation, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. A little more about my father: he can be energetic, independent. He's a jokester. He has some memory issues, finding words, etc but you can't easily pull anything over on him. Can get frustrated if things don't work, can't find something. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. Honest, patient, doesn't mind hearing stories repeated. Or listening to my dad talk in. Someone who can see little things that might need to be done or addressed, keep my Dad positive. Dad thinks he is just fine doesn't really need help. He does do pretty good for 88. Generally he's does well, he's a picky eater has macular degeneration, likes to watch movies, romantic comedies , very close to TV has hearing aides but sometimes doesn't wear them. . He has a person who cleans every week on Monday's , fills his prescriptions, throws out old food in the fridge, and lets family know what's up. My brother takes him out to eat a few times a week .
