I am looking for someone to stay home with my Dad so that the other adults in the house can go back to work instead of caring for him 24/7 (or it may be just a respite for a few days a week).
A home health aide doesn't seem right, a nurse wouldn't be required. Chances are they may need to do nothing but keep them company. They have balance issues but mostly just don't recognize self limitations. Think they can do things that seem normal but are dangerous for them. (exercise vigorously, cook something) or they might try to do something too difficult for themselves and become frustrated to the point of mental anguish (like download something on the computer). So three parts: what type of worker would I hire, what would they do, and how would I explain their duties to the patient.
They would need to make lunch and maybe snacks, ensure they eat regularly, and help them figure out the tv controls at times.
Thanks for your help!!!
