About this Care Recipient

Jack is a great patient with a good attitude despite his battle with a brain tumor for the past 14 years, which has gradually taken away his mobility and speaking ability. A former model hobbyist, avid reader and sailor, he now is primarily confined to a hospital bed. We have tried to make a very comfortable room for him with lots of light and simple activities he can participate in -- simple puzzles or legos. He requires being changed (toileting), positioned in bed, and has a gastric tube for feeding and tracheostomy with humidifier and oxygen for breathing (we administer suctioning twice daily or as necessary). We are seeking caregiving help primarily for changing, grooming, hair washing, sheet changes, and helping move him into a chair (with a hoyer lift).
