About who needs care: My mother enjoys going out to local restaurants to eat lunch or early dinners. We are interested in a companion to accompany Mom and provide transportation. Since my mother lives on Balboa Island she does have a golf cart that the companion would have access to for local Island restaurants. We should like someone who speaks English and has patience with dealing with older people. About the care needs: My mother has lived a very 'sheltered life' and has not been around minorities. She is 95 years old and set in her ways. She needs someone who will have patience with an older person. My mother is not very talkative but finds that she is by herself a lot and lonely for some companionship other then just me her daughter and her granddaughter that lives with her but has a day time job. Services needed include: transportation, and companionship. Preference for a caregiver who is female.
