Elder care Job in Jackson, Wyoming

My husband is 87 years of age. He is ambulatory. He is somewhat forgetful but does not have Alzheimers or senility. He is able to drive his car in the daytime, not after dark. He has some dizziness or feels light headed when he stands. He gets dehydrated easily so he drinks a glass of Gatorade when he wakes in the morning and another at bedtime. His greatest fear is falling. He is a very big guy and not flexible or agile; getting him up when he falls is difficult! He likes to make his own breakfast but i get everything ready for him as he can lose energy quickly. He might start feeling weak - I give him a high protein Ensure to drink (always in the fridge) he usually feels better in 15-20 minutes. Most of his meals are either microwavable or frozen pizza. He may want to order something to be delivered. You will have to help him do that. We have a call button and a bell so you do not hover. He would not want that. He will want to be left alone as much as possible. He does not like conversation. Although, he may decide to tell you his life story. The best thing is to leave him alone, unless he calls you! He reads and watches tv most of the time. He drives into town to pick up the mail and prescriptions. You might have to take a trip to the grocery store, I will try to have everything needed in the house. I might ask for a few hours or a few days, I will give as much notice as possible, but could call with only an hour notice. I will not hold it against you if you cannot do it
