My father is her primary caregiver at all times. He needs a couple of days that someone reliable, responsible and attentive to her care can stay for several hours so he can go to the doctor, grocery and occasionally assist with taking her to appointments. He is very set in his care requirements for her but not unrealistic in his expectations. The person would need to be a knowledgeable and experienced caregiver.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
