Included were meals, medication allocation, diabetes testing, transportation, (unfortunately he spent 5 years in a wheelchair) applications for making the home safe, wound care due to 4 major surgeries (some surgeries related to purple hearts from decades ago) dozens of minor surgeries due to agent orange/cancer, hygiene, house keeping, physical therapy, Dementia, Alzheimer's, depression, monitored vital sign, bed making, received physician's order, coordinated with hospital, physicians and physical therapist for monthly checks, perform first aide, kept him socially engaged by going to outside events i.e. restaurants, ball games, events and activities. All my very best Thomas (Tim) Riggs Hope to hear from you soon.
