Job description

My wife, who has dementia, is in need of some care, to start as soon as possible, for assistance and companionship while I'm out of the house. We live in Milwaukie, OR, and are looking for 4-6 hours per visit in the afternoon, 5-7 days a week. She needs help with meal preparation and being encouraged to eat, being reminded to use her walker, possible bathing assistance once she feels comfortable, and general companionship. We'd also like the caregiver to assist with letting our dog out and some light housekeeping as needed. Female caregiver preferred. The hourly rate for this job is $17. **Optimal Aging Diamond Pool caregivers only**

About this Care Recipient

We have a dog and a cat in our house. My wife needs to be reminded to use her walker. She is recovering from a UTI right now and is more unsteady. She's somewhat resistant to assistance right now but could benefit from working with a person who can build trust.
