(Deep Cove, North Vancouver)
Deep Cove Road near Badger Road
Looking for a companion/caregiver for my husband who has young onset alzheimers as well as multiple myeloma. My husband is in the early/moderate stage of his dementia and is still fairly independent. He is kind and good natured, enjoys conversations with others and being in nature. He particularly likes to go for walks with our dog, who is also his best friend. He attends short chemotherapy treatments once a week and requires blood tests every second week.
I am looking for someone who has experience working with people with dementia and comfortable navigating the health care system. I also need someone who is available Wednesday’s and Friday’s as these are the days he has regularly scheduled treatments and tests. You would be responsible for taking my husband to his appointments, prepare simple meals, and take him and our dog for walks. This position may be expanded as his health requires.
compensation: $20.00-$30.00 per hour depending on experience
