Help needed for my mother in her 60s - seeking part-time companion care. The ideal match will meet the requirements below. Meal Preparation: Leave their fridge/freezer a bit stocked with snacks or meals--- a few. Transportation: This will be less likely. Companionship: Share the emotional/compassionate burden of caring for a loved one with dementia. Schedule Details: The schedule is absolutely flexible, looking for the Right Person (!) :) --- ideally the same set of a few hours every week. My dad has Alzheimer's and his wife cares for him. She needs relief, and companionship herself so she's not alone in this. It would be lovely to find someone who could be present in their home a few hours once or twice per week helping with various home tasks (cleaning/tidying/cooking), keeping my dad's wife company and her spirits up, eventually assisting my dad some, and largely bringing another voice/presence in the home that my dad gets used to that is not just his wife. Often especially at first I believe his wife will be there with you, but many times she might get out of the house or retire to the bedroom. The idea is a long term relationship- friendship- companionship- help-joy provider-helper. Preferences for a caregiver who is a non-smoker.
