Patient has memory issues, she needs to have someone there who can gently redirect her, when she is trying to get up and do things. You would be sitting with patient while caregiver gets her dinner ready, while patient goes outside to smoke a cigarette, and then watch her while she eats (she eats well), needs to make sure she does not get up and take her plate to the sink or get into the refrigerator, or go outside. Caregiver basically gets things set for dinner, then goes and gets a shower, once she is done, you are able to leave. Patient needs to have someone watching her so she does not fall, choke or get into anything harmful.

Family is very friendly, house is clean, they have 2 dogs and 2 cats, (dogs are in a kennel and one of the cats you will never see), honestly, the other cat is patient's best friend, but she is very stand offish. Will barely come to strangers when called. I personally have asthma and am allergic to cats and this cat does not set my allergies off.

Need someone that can make 2 days a week visit, does not necessarily have to be Tuesday and Thursday, but would like to have someone twice a week.
