Senior companion for 92-year-old Alzheimer's client with memory issues. Planned outings 2 afternoons per week, such as miniature golf, nature reserves, ping pong, craft store shopping, the driving range, the beach, thrift stores, playing cards, etc. Outings always included a nutritious lunch out. Position lasted 5 months. Senior companion for 9 months to early onset Alzheimer's client. Played cards & games often. Took client shopping and outings that I planned; art exhibits, craft shows, nature reserves, garage sales, and thrift stores. Did laundry, watered plants, some vacuuming, and cleaning cat room. My main responsibility was entertaining my client- we often went out to eat and to the movies. In my last position, I was personal assistant to a woman who had had foot surgery and couldn't walk. I ran errands, did grocery shopping, made some dinners, took the dog out. Brought her her lunch, drinks and snacks as requested. Provided companionship.
