Seeking caregiver/companion service for my 87-year-old cognitive grandfather. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, medication prompting, light housekeeping. Specialized care needs: support for chronic illness, support for memory care.
This 87-year-old cognitive mobile man with end stage COPD, Essential Hypertension and early stage Dementia will not be bossed around. So the selected caregiver will need to know how to give verbal ques without making him feel bossed. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty or quiet. Would need to be firm in what they say and not let him manipulate them. My grandfather is cognitive for the most part. He is showing signs of early dementia. He doesn't require any assistance other than light meal prep for lunch and just companionship during the hours I'm at work.
