Father-in-law needs someone to hang out in his apt while he's there. He's completely functional physically, so he does not need to be cleaned or taken to the toilet, etc. He's starting to become confused and his short-term memory is degrading, so he needs someone to make sure he doesn't wander off, etc. He pretty much watches TV all day, so it should be an easy job. It's not required, but if you're able to speak Gujarati or cook Gujarati food, that'd be even better! We'll likely hire 2-3 people to cover the time, but the more hours you can work, the better, so that we can have as much consistency and routine for him as possible. We live upstairs from him.
