Looking to hire a experienced and responsible caregiver to help me take care of my mom, located in Jamaica Plain, MA. She has vascular dementia, but is at the very early stage, Mild Cognitive Impairment. The treatment for her disease is exercise, healthy food, and mental stimulation. I need someone who can cover me when I go to work, so they need to be able to drive her to her exercise classes every day and take her places that could be fun, such as lectures and theater, etc.
She's really sweet but has inertia, so needs someone to be pretty directive with her- bossy, but kind about it. She lives with me, her daughter. I'm not sure what kind of job I'll get so I'm not certain what the hours will be yet.
She also walks her dog every day at between 4-5 and would be nice if someone could walk with her or take her to the pond to walk Teddy.
