We're looking for someone who has experience with Alzheimer's. My mom is still earlier stages and is physically capable and generally lucid, so we primarily need a companion worker to help her with loneliness, as her husband passed away in 2009. However, she does need a hand around the house like helping her find lost items, using technology like the laundry machine and TV, helping her plan social engagements with friends, running errands/groceries and housecleaning.
An ideal day would include walking her dog Tux, tending to the garden, lunch with friends, going to the grocery store, going to the yacht club, watching movies, and going on walks!
Her interests include gardening, ballet, movies, linens, art, dance, and telling stories.
More than anything she just need someone around to lend an ear and to keep her company!
