I Need A Caregiver/Driver For My Dad (soquel)

Soquel Drive near Center St.

(google map)

compensation: $25 Per Hour

Hello,

My Dad has dementia and very recently stopped driving. He needs someone to take him for drives by the beach, walks, store, and to somewhere to eat out. He is still very physically active with energy and doesn't like being around the house all day and gets restless. He also a bit stubborn and doesn't accept he needs help. He is also a bit shy and not that outgoing.

Other duties could be to check out the house to make sure everything looks ok, light meal preparation, laundry or making sure he has eaten and/or taken medications. The main thing though is getting out of the house to do things. He doesn't really feel comfortable having someone with him in the house for very long.

I am thinking a couple days a week and 4 hours a day. I do one day a week. I'm sure more will be needed very soon.

Please send a resume, pictures of yourself, references and anything else you think will help me. I need to make sure whoever is helping him is safe as this isn't going through a home healthcare agency. I tried going through an agency and he told the person they sent he didn't need anything and they went home. So I have decided to see what else is out there. I live in San Jose so meeting is not easy and I need to look at things online about you before we meet.

Thanks!
