Dear family,

I have created this site so that we can come together as a family to support our sweet and loving Pop. We need to provide care for him on the weekends from 7:00 AM Saturdays when his caregiver leaves, to 7:00 AM on Monday when his caregiver returns.  There are also times where Gerald will have days off and we need to provide back up coverage.   We can split up the weekends between multiple people. Kids are always welcome to come along (he loves spending time with the grands). 

The request is to spend quality time, cook/provide healthy meals, and make sure medications are taken properly.  Toni, Kathy, or Dona can help you with any details you aren't sure of.  He really should not be left alone because he needs oversight.   He usually goes to bed by 8:00 PM (sometimes earlier) and wakes by 8:00 AM (sometimes earlier). He can use the restroom on his own.  Turn the shower on for him in the morning and get his toothbrush ready for when he gets out.  Help him with his clothes, if needed.

Many of you don't feel that you can stay overnight, however, your help is very much appreciated if you can cover the day.  There are many ways to take care of Pop/Pawpaw/Kyle and still handle your own personal responsibilities.  He loves the company!

We all love our Pop dearly and want him to thrive in these later years in life.  He and Mom always took great pride in all of this family. With all of us coming together, we can surely make these days memorable for all of us.  Please click on the calendar and sign up for a day, night, or weekend when you are available.  A regular rotation of family members is good for him!
