A little more about my aunt: she can be energetic, pleasant, outgoing.
My aunt has dementia. She leads a wonderful and fulfilling lifestyle, but needs help scheduling, driving, and really just a dependable, long-term friend. She is still fully functional and can care for her own hygiene. She needs companionship, rides to dr appts and interaction w the outside world daily (farmers markets, mani/pedi), etc). She is plenty chatty and very outgoing. She likes to take walks to the beach. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty, strong, outdoorsy.
We need someone with enough authority for my aunt to let her take the lead, but someone who still let's my aunt feel like she is still in control. Needs to be chatty.

She goes to weekly mani/pedi, farmers mkt, walks around the neighborhood, etc. Needs to be chatty and outgoing.
We pay for the caretakers meals while dining out and other incidentals. We can ease into the full time schedule and can start part time for the right person.
