Seeking care for my husband in his 60s. Services needed: companionship, bathing / dressing, meal preparation, medication prompting, help staying physically active, mobility assistance. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for memory care. A little more about my husband: he can be anxious, grouchy, reserved. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong. Someone compassionate and used to mild hallucinations, extreme confusion, and making sure my husband is safe and cared for. Ideal someone who would be ok with a bit of chatting even though he doesn't really make sense. Someone who can help him when he gets agitated, and someone who doesn't mind sitting and reading or watching tv. Likely you wouldn't be leaving our home with him. He can get restless and may enjoy a short walk. Mostly he spends time at home. He does enjoy the back yard.
