About this Care Recipient

My father was a very intelligent man who owned his own businesses. He is very authoritative and can have bouts of anger while people are trying to help him. But he can also be very appreciative and sweet. He is extremely lonely and would love to have someone do some cognitive therapy with him. He loves puzzle games. He is not eating well and gets very little exercise. He has very little short term memory and struggles to remember even the previous day. He can no longer drive and gets depressed about simple tasks like getting a haircut. My father will be having a cataract removed soon. He will need to do drops in his eyes prior to the surgery. I don’t think he can do that without assistance. So, there may be a temporary need for daily care, but mainly I am looking for someone to come twice a week to visit with him, check his meds, prepare a meal, and occasionally drive him for errands. Also, once the weather gets nicer, maybe take a walk.
