I need companion care for my husband, Mon-Fri 1 to 5 pm, 20 hours a week, a cheerful, patient caregiver with some understanding of and a soft spot for elders, who can connect with genuine respect and interest. We would like him to be socially engaged and physically active as much as possible, so I would ask you to drive our vehicle for occasional outings: lunch out a few times a week, walks, hikes, golf, bowling, tennis, other? Lunch at home other days. Prefer someone with experience or specific knowledge of Alzheimer's. For instance, sometimes he needs reminders to drink enough or go to the bathroom before going out, and may need occasional coaching. Need a balance between helping/supporting and allowing him as much choice and autonomy as is reasonable. I do background and DMV checks and deduct taxes.
