The care will likely be needed M/W/F of every week from the hours of approximately 10am-2pm and require the following: - Help get him from his room to the dining room table for breakfast and reading the paper (He uses a walker but needs someone to help lift him out of the chair sometimes and walk behind/with him to ensure he doesn't fall) - Make breakfast* for him and ensure he eats - Help him get around as needed (mostly just to/from the bathroom, den, or dining room) - Help him get cleaned up (bathed/groomed) and dressed - Massage his legs to keep swelling down - Clean his eye glasses and hearing aids - Perform light cleaning of bathroom and den (where he stays/sleeps) - Around noon, help him get situated for a nap - In the downtime between needs, cook/prepare his lunch* and dinner* MUST SPEAK CLEAR FLUENT ENGLISH...EXTREMELY HARD OF HEARING CNA or experience considered. Strong - must help him lift himself. *Due to his health issues, he needs low sodium meals that are easy to eat without teeth. And, it needs to be food that is regularly appetizing, as he already has a hard enough time wanting to eat low sodium food as it is, and there is only so much pudding, ice cream, and canned vegetables someone can eat.
