Companion Care Needed For My Father - My father is a retired US...

Part Time $20 – 30/hr Starts 01/03 Alexandria, VA
About who needs care: My father is a retired US Army Lt. Col / gov employee / educator who's wife recently passed away, lives alone, and has mild dementia. He takes several walks a day in the neighborhood (has wonderful, caring neighbors since 1985 who also look after him), watches television (mostly Fox News), and runs short errands from time to time. He is physically active / healthy, already has cleaning ladies and a lawn service, he just needs companionship, someone to check in on him, perhaps make an occasional meal for him, and make sure he is taking his medication. Just someone to have the occasional lunch with him so he is not always eating alone. I visit every Tuesday and Thursday after work and have dinner with him so he is not alone all the time. I also take him to his grandkids sporting events on the occasional weekend. I also take him to all his medical appointments. He does not want to downsize his home as it is all about patterns and relocating him out of his neighborhood would likely confuse him unnecessarily. About the care needs: Someone who will chat with him, see how his day is going, and make sure he is eating well. Interaction would help his memory. Someone should be ok with just sitting watching television and keep him company (he is a bit of a conservative-leaning fellow). Also perhaps go on walks in the neighborhood with him when he does. He loves music and plays solitaire on his iPad. No pets... just him in a large house all by himself. Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, and companionship.
