We are looking for a as needed companion for my grandmother has dementia, Alzheimer, and diabetes. She is a very nice lady but can be mean when she doesn't want help. She has been independent her entire life and this year has been the first time she has needed help. She recently had up to her knee amputated and requires some assitance getting around, she doesn't need to be carried just needs to be shadowed to prevent a fall. She is a kind woman who likes to talk about her family. My grandpop is her primary caregiver and wants to attend my wedding on 10/15/16 but he can't because no one else can watch her. We would like to have someone meet her prior to this date and if it goes, the position might eventually be able to become full time. The pay rate is $10 an hour and for 10/15/16 you can expect to be there from 5pm-12am.
- Somewhat receptive to outside help
- Age range: 65 to 74 years old
