Care and Companionship for Mom with Early Onset Alzheimer's — Archived

Family in Toronto

Hi there my name is Gabriela. My family and I are interested in employing a long-term caregiver and companion for our 64 year old otherwise healthy mom who suffers from Early Onset Alzheimer's. Ideally, we'd find someone who can stick with us long term and become a "live-out-member-of-our-extended-family". We currently share caregiving duties between my sister, my stepdad and myself. My sister and I are both new moms with little boys. Between home and work, it doesn't leave much time for us to properly care for our mom's escalating dementia. We'd like to hire somebody who can help our mother to enjoy herself in ways that she still can while aiding her with cues, assisting with daily hygiene routines / getting ready to go out, make meals with her, assist with light cleaning, drive her to appointments / activities and generally be her companion. Some travel might/could be involved, but this is entirely negotiable. Experience with Alzheimer's / Dementia would be a huge asset. As much as we are all learning to navigate, someone who has some reference to past experience and can educate us would be wonderful to have on our team. My mother's native language is Czech, so a Czech speaker would be great, but we know that is a bit of a long shot. If you're still reading, it would be wonderful to speak to you. My contact details are in the ad. Thanks so very much, Gabi
