Job description

My Aunt is 82 year old and has Dementia. My Aunt is a small petite lady at 4'9 and 105 pounds. She has mobility issues and has fallen in the past. She does use a walker but needs assistance with her mobility even when using the walker. My Aunt is very fearful of falling again. She will be in a rehab center and then living in the nursing home in Washington. We would like someone who can assist her with eating one meal at 12 pm or 5 pm. Also would like some quality time spent with her visiting, conversation, taking her for a walk (she is now in wheelchair but hope rehab will help her). Job would be 2-6 hours/ week and more hours if we aren't available to be there. Our Family is 30 minutes and we usually stop in twice weekly to visit/help her.
