And activity..I also need transportation for him. I'd like there's days a week all day . I need to run errands. Get some things done. And time for me. He on a fixed social security and I'm his caregiver. Do they have a waiver ?
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
Also, some of us volunteer to visit home bound people for socializing and the caregiver for the lady I visit with uses the time to get in a quick errand.
Churches also might be a link to other community options for you.
Can Dad pay privately for this kind of service? Most of these places accept Medicaid payments, and some offer "scholarships" for low-income folks.
My husband also bowled with a senior league he hooked up with through the local senior center. I took him at first but a woman on the league discovered he lived near her and she picked him up. He was the only one on the league with dementia and they were all very patient with him, and protective.
His other social activity was golf once a week (during out short summer) set up by a local rehabilitation facility. All of the players were handicapped in some way, and each was paired up with a volunteer. It was awesome and really helped him feel like he had a little "normal" life.
I think you are so right to be looking for some social interaction for your father. If it can be something that frees up your time, so much the better! Good luck!
