We need companion care during the day to take care of my Mom and to a lesser extent my Dad. Both are in their 70s, unfortunately my Mother suffers from Dementia. Ideally, an aide would come in the morning, help prepare a simple breakfast and double check medication has been given, then help them attend an activity / go to the gym / take them grocery shopping, etc. Afterwards, the companion would help them go to lunch or prepare a lunch for them and then an afternoon activity as needed. The main priority is to watch my Mom, make sure they are having meals, and help them to do something enjoyable every day without worrying about being lost, forgetting a meal, and so on.
