Seeking a part time care giver for my 75 yr old mother Emma who has moderate dementia. She needs assistance with meal prep, minor tidying around the house, sometimes finding appropriate clothes, going on walks, driving her to local places she likes to go like Whole Foods or Starbucks. She lives alone in her home in Silver Lake per her wishes. We take measures to keep her safe and ensure her wellbeing as much as possible. She already has another caregiver there 16 hrs a week and I've been filing in the other days, but I work and have a small child so we need more help. The job would involve coming in the morning, helping/prompting her choose something to eat and drink, providing companionship and conversation, actively asking her if she's like to go for a walk, or a drive, then later when she wants to relax, helping her work her remote to find a tv show she likes, maybe make her a cup of hot tea etc., and prepping something for her to eat later for dinner. (I do all the grocery shopping). Being her safe person in the world if she goes out. She needs a lot of direction even when she acts like she doesn't. This person needs to have their own transportation, be kind and pro-active in talking and suggesting walks, outings, playing music, etc. and respecting her wishes when she just wants to stay home etc. Thanks so much for reading!
