About who needs care: My husband, Bob has a feeding tube, is very mobile but is a little unsteady and lately has become at risk for a fall. He is a very private and introverted man, extremely intelligent and loves quiet. He is self sufficient but would like a companion a few days a week and to be taken to the bank, pharmacy, etc. I will be away soon for a few short vacations (July) but would like to begin the process soon.
About the care needs: The caregiver should be able to drive, wash only a few dishes. If the person loves literature, old movies. Jewish studies, philosophy, it would help. A quiet, compassionate person would be fine. He currently needs only companionship but this may work in to laundry and light housekeeping.
Services needed include: transportation, and companionship.
