About this Care Recipient

George is a 77 year old great guy with Parkinson’s who recently broke his hip. He’s a jokester and happy at home. His personality and mind are still there and pretty much perfect. Since his fracture, he has been in a rehabilitation center and has gotten accustomed to daily help with showers, toileting, eating, dressing, etc. His wife who helps take care of him has been in the hospital since January, and will also be needing care when she returns from the hospital (will discuss later). $12-$15 an hour
