Need a reliable and passionate caregiver located near Spring, TX to help care for Father. I need care 3 days per week in the afternoon. I would like the support to begin October 24, 2016 and estimate 3 hours per week. The caregiver is expected to help with walking & exercise, toileting, grooming, and bathing. Only serious applicants will be considered. A great opportunity to work privately in a loving home, while earning more!

About this Care Recipient

My father is 80 years old, he suffered a stroke 15 or more years ago which left him partially paralyzed on one side. However he is able to walk a bit and sit and stand on his own. He suffers from depression periodically and has diabetes and has had some previous heart issues ( clogged arteries ). He can be stubborn at times but he is actually a very seet loving man. I think his condition has made him depenant on others and he was always a very prideful independant father and husband. I'm looking for someone who would be able to spend maybe 2 hours a day with him, 2 or 3 days a week. My mom is in her late 70's and cannot care for him anymore they he should be. This peson must be able to lift him, bathe him and provide some staning and walking or rang of motion excercise. Also must have a good sense of humor, y dad is a charecter.
