I'm looking for a roommate and part-time helper for my 79-year-old father in Brighton, MA. He does not require a caregiver as he is independent. He does his own driving, shopping and cooking. However, he is starting to display some memory loss, so it would be helpful for someone to be there to help with reminders, cleaning around the house, and to provide assistance if needed.
Compensation: free room and board (would not interfere with your school or job)
Living situation: you'd have a private bedroom and bathroom, shared living room and kitchen
Duties: minor housework to help keep the place tidy, laundry, bring out trash, throwing away expired food regularly, etc. Provide some companionship, give reminders, alert family members if there are any causes for alarm.
Spanish or Italian speakers a plus!
