Ruthie would be ready for the day when companion arrives. She needs someone compassionate and kind to play games with, go on a walk and prep a meal. She's independent but needs someone with her to take a blood pressure reading and record it. and to be able to call us if there is a need.
About the care needs: KIND!
Patient & respectful - someone who doesn't mind repetitive conversations.
Responsible, someone who is not prone to last minute cancellations.
Trustworthy - speaks for itself. :)
Someone who can be flexible occasionally due to appointments and such.
Someone who likes to do puzzles, play games and go for walks. (But there can also be down time to read/study/etc. if you'd like)
We need someone who can use an automatic blood pressure cuff to take readings and write them down (We can show you how to do it.) Also, to confirm that meds have been taken.
We need someone for a couple days a week and an occasional Saturday.
We'd also like to take a 2 day getaway each month, it would be great if the same person was able to cover that. If not, we hope to find someone for that.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
