About who needs care: Diagnosed with dementia. Enjoys being outdoors, music, gardening, walking, reading. She has a relatively structured day with my father at home, we are hoping to find someone to keep her company and give my dad a break as well as assist with some very light housework in partnership with my mom so that she feels engaged and helpful.
About the care needs: Ideally the person would have an easy going personality but is also decisive and can help provide some direction for my mom. It is great if they enjoy being outdoors and active, if they have experience with adults with dementia, are safe drivers, and can be flexible in tapping into and cultivating interests or activities for my mom.
Services needed include: transportation, meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
