My 86 year old mother-in-law has mild (to moderate) dementia and needs someone to stay with her during the day. She walks (very slowly) with a cane and gets out of chairs by herself. May occasionally need a boost up. She needs someone to help dress (e.g tie shoes, put in hearing aides, fasten bra), fix lunch and general activities to keep her stimulated (puzzle books, bingo, cards, etc.) . She otherwise sleeps. Also need someone with reliable transportation who can at times take her to or pick her up from appointments. She is a very pleasant and lovable woman who is easy to get along with.
- Very receptive to outside help
- Age range: Over 85 years old
