I need a kind, patient, and warm companion care provider with Alzheimer's / Dementia experience for my mother who just turned 90. Most important functions are to provide companionship and social interaction, including assistance in using technology such as social media, the TV, and websites on a tablet or computer to watch videos, the internet, and email. Companionship in listening to or telling stories, drawing, eating, reading, or playing games such as scrabble is helpful. Some light meal preparation, coffee making, tidying up, and occasional bathroom cleanup are involved. Additional responsibilities include light meal preparation. Preferences for a caregiver who is a non-smoker and CPR / first-aid trained.
