About who needs care: My father is managing dementia. He likes to walk in the neighborhood, but needs someone to walk with him, to engage him with things he is seeing on the walk, and most importantly, to get him back home. He doesn't like being told that he isn't doing things correctly or needs to do this or that instead... we want him to feel he has freedom, but also want to make sure he is safe.
About the care needs: We are hoping to find someone with memory care/dementia/Alzheimer's experience who knows how to positively engage, and is patient and positive in interactions with the memory-impaired client. We also need someone who enjoys walking outdoors, looking at birds, flowers, water...
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
