Family in Toronto

Hello Cecille a short family background: lost sister (Rachel) to in 2000 lost brother (Paul) in early 60s due to heart failure at a month old my mother is bi-polar and is a depressive my father is depressive and has cognitive issues my father likes to drink a beer or two prior to his meal may seem tipsy, but it is his norm before meals. family has had a past of addiction, though im not sure where this stands now as they are too elderly to go beyond limits set by their doctor and their physical mobility. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- proposed list of duties for the assigned PSWs that would be at my parents home 3 afternoons per week during 4 hour afternoon stay PAW duties will include but are not limited too: -ask about medications and remind my father about HIS pills mostly as he doesnt have anyone to persue this. (high blood pressure medicine a priority) -laundry- wash/dry/fold/put away once per week- unless required more often, then another load of laundry may be requires (doubtful though) -fresh towels replaced and provided (PAW may organize linen closets to suit their needs for towels and bed sheets etc) -homestyle meal (nothing spicy), portion size to be determined by my father and mother, they eat small but if my father is cheerful enough, he will eat more. relaxation and assurance that things are ok is important. -sundays to be a small roast beef dish with a potato and vegetables & small desert. -meal to be served to my father at table with cutlery, napkin and place mat-PLEASE ENCOURAGE HYDRATION.water/ fluids for my father. -my mother eats very light and must have small meals (by her request) brought to her bed for consumption. she will make the PAW or my father aware of what she would want (usually something small from the meal or fridge) -all dishes in sink to washed (post meal), dried and put away -PAW to make list for grocery delivery once per week-emailed to me for delivery-if for some reason groceries were not followed up upon, please have PAW be creative with what is in the fridge and on hand -change bed sheets on all three occupants beds - turn down beds for bedtime- make beds welcoming -change diaper for my mother. -sit my mom up and engage her (mom) in conversation. my mother loves to read. (BOTH my mother and father are artists and have loved each other all of their lives, so art and how shared their lives would be a great topic) -PLEASE ENCOURAGE HYDRATION. water/ fluids for my mother. helping her drink water by PAW is a major asset as she cannot use her hands. -engage in conversation with my father.
