Home Health Needed - The assistance is needed for the weekend of August 12, 2022 to help with elderly father (and possibly other times in the future) at a home near Marquette. The person would need to come out for a few shorter mutually arranged times to get familiar with the routine. He uses a walker, but will need to shadow activities to proactively avoid any falls as his balance is poor. This would entail following him to the bathroom up to once an hour. May also need to heat up a lunch in the microwave. In September, help may be needed again around the weekends of the 17th or 24th.  Hourly payment will be determined by qualifications and the match for the needs of my father. Contact Kathleen at 650-224-6315 for more information. (4/18/22; updated 7/5/22)
