We're looking for someone to help provide care for my mother, who is 81 and suffers from dementia. She does converse, and remembers who people are, but has significant short term memory loss. She needs companionship, help preparing meals, and transportation for running errands and trips to the doctors office.
We are looking for someone who can:
Engage in meaningful conversations and activities to stimulate cognitive function.
Plan and organize daily activities, exercise routines, and outings.
Provide assistance with personal care and daily living tasks.
Currently, she has a caregiver two mornings per week, and we are looking to add another person for two additional days, for about 4 hours on each day. The daytime hours are flexible, and the most important thing is a good fit!
She is very close to her mini Schnauzer!
