We need companion care to take care of my mother in Burbank. Meal Preparation: Heat soup, dish up tuna salad, nothing complicated. Light Housekeeping: Just empty trash and wash up dishes. Schedule Details: There is no hard and fast time when the person needs to come. They just shouldn't come too early in the day or too late. I would say between noon and 5 p.m. would be fine. And they need only stay for long enough to make sure she has a meal, and is okay. My mom is schizophrenic, so she sometimes has paranoid ideas, but she is generally genial and pleasant UNLESS the person won't leave when she asks them too. Sometimes, she doesn't want company, so the caregiver can just set out something for her to eat, and go, if that's what she wants. She can walk, but might need help to come into the kitchen. She refuses to use her walker. Preferences for a caregiver who is a non-smoker and CPR / first-aid trained.
