Part-time Companion Care. Social Worker W/expertise In Dementia And Eldercare Needs.

In addition to Companion Care, I offer a holistic approach to addressing your needs. I engage my clients in mind and body. I am able to assess your needs and tailor a routine/schedule based on those needs. For prior clients, I have assembled routines consisting of brain games specific to cognitive ability, physical activities, and socialization. I am also happy to attend/coordinate medical visits, run errands, organize your home, prepare nutritious meals, walk your dog/cuddle with your cat. I am a professional social worker, trained and experienced in eldercare. I worked at Florida Atlantic University's Memory Care agency assisting families with their loved ones diagnosed with Dementia. I offered education and support to the family as well as engaging activities for the person diagnosed with Dementia. I look forward to hearing from you to see how I can be of help.

Lyda has been an absolute Godsend for my family. My mother developed mild dementia while I was living in Louisville, KY, and I hired Lyda as a companion. Lyda went above and beyond, helping Mom sort and pay bills, creating a notebook of important numbers and tasks, developing and playing memory games, and taking Mom on wonderful outings. When Mom broke her hip and needed surgery, Lyda stayed by her side at the hospital until I could get here from Louisville. When Mom went to rehab and then to a nursing home where she was very happy, I continued to have Lyda visit, even after I moved back to Asheville and was able to see Mom several times a week myself. I did this because Mom enjoyed Lyda's visits so much and because Lyda had such a keen eye for any changes in Mom's mood or condition. Lyda is extremely intelligent and 100% reliable and trustworthy. I am incredibly grateful to her and cannot recommend her highly enough!
