Seeking care for my father in his 70s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, mobility assistance. No prior experience required. Male caregiver preferred. A little more about my father: he can be anxious, lethargic, pleasant. My Dad is in rehab recovering from back surgery that was 2 months ago, he is very anxious to go home but still needs help getting around and is very open to having someone come into to his home to help take care of him. He's very appetitive of help but the pain meds make him lethargic so he needs some motivation. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong. My dad is slow moving and hard of hearing so he needs someone who can be patient with him. He is 183lbs so we need someone strong to assist him. He can still use his arms to push himself up but his legs are really weak. He likes to talk. My father is used to leaving alone and being independent so this has been a bit of an adjustment for him. Hopefully after he recovers more he won't need as much help.
I am his 31-year-old daughter, I work full time and I just got married a year and half ago so I will be starting a family soon. I help my Dad with his finances and medical logistics but I am of small stature and have my own back issues due to accident a few years ago so I have physical and time limitations and my father understands that and he knows I am trying my best to help him and is fine with having hired help. I can do his grocery shopping, cooking and housekeeping.
