We need a companion care provider for my 84 y/o father with MILD dementia. He is still physically active & mentally sharp, but lost short term memory from encephalitis. Responsibilities include meal prep (lunch & occas. dinner), reminders to take meds, providing social interaction & companionship. This includes engaging him in conversation, going to the gym, volunteer work, movies, etc.
Hours are generally 9 a.m. to 4 pm, and occasionally until 8 or 9 p.m. when we both have to work late. Light housekeeping help would also be greatly appreciated.
Ping is fluent in English, but if you speak Cantonese, this will be an additional bonus. Caregiver must also be non-smoker, and *motivated* to work hard at engaging my dad in conversation & activities, because he is a quiet man who needs prompting in this area.
