I Am Looking For Part Time Flexible Days/ Hours

Avg response < 1 hrs

I took care of my elderly Dad for about 15 years, for 8 years when he was living in his own home alone and then for about 7 years when he was in an assisted living facility, My Dad had dementia and short term memory loss, so I have experience with both. I would fill his medicine box, take him to doctor's appointments, shop for and cook food, do his laundry, light housework etc. He passed away in July 2014. I really miss him. I was a stay at home mother for my 2 children (who are now grown) and am looking for a part time job with flexible hours and days. I would love to be a companion/assistant for an elderly person whether they live alone or live at a nursing home or assisted living. I am not able to bathe/shower or toilet. I love to cook! I'm also a part time dog walker/pet sitter so I can also help with dogs/cats. I'm extremely trustworthy, dependable, flexible, patient & caring. I enjoy talking with elderly people about their life & spending time with them.

Cathy has worked for 2 years taking care of my 91 years old mother who has dementia. My mom lives alone, with her small dog Petunia. Cathy cooks meals, does groceries, takes mom to doctors appointments, does light housework and laundry, as well as anything else that might be needed. She allows my mom to still have "independence". Cathy is such a smart, wonderful, caring, compassionate woman with a great sense of humor. My mother loves her and I love how I can relax knowing Cathy is with my mom. She is honest, and very dependable and is so easy to talk to.
