Help needed for my mother in her 80s - seeking part-time companion care. The ideal match will meet the requirements below. Transportation: Only if extra and especially arranged. Medication Management: Stay on schedule with pills. Light Housekeeping: Only if extra and especially arranged. Schedule Details: We need someone to check in on my mom daily. The main requirement is that you are reliable, caring, smart, trustworthy and have excellent background checks. You can decide with my mom the best time of day (and there will be days she is not home herself) but I am thinking daily checks around 7 p.m. would be ideal. The visit itself doesn't have to be long, typically. Check to be sure she took her meds and that she seems normal and is eating and drinking. If anything seems off, give me a call. Once a week, give me a call to summarize. We will start off paying you $20 a visit but that could increase over time and also if you want more to do, we could probably find more for you to do. :-). My mother is smart, capable and very independent but has difficulty seeing and hearing and needs very trustworthy, reliable check ins daily so I can know if she suddenly had a health issue or forgot to take her meds. You need to be able to communicate well with her, communicate well with me, and any other stray person who may pop in or out... including my siblings, aunt, neighbors with a dog, my kid and their dog, etc. :-).
