About the Family
Daytime help for mainly cooking and cleaning for a pair of seniors, ages 73 and 79. The wife (73) will be post surgery so will need rest, and so the husband (79) will need help with cooking (lunch and dinner) and cleaning. This is an Asian couple, so would prefer if helper is Cantonese speaking. Help will be needed starting early or mid September. They live in a small apartment so there won’t be heavy cleaning involved.
When older people needs some help at home, it's not necessarily nursing level care. Most often it's companionship and practical help for someone who has some physical limitations and/or creating a safe environment for someone with early stage dementia.
The elderly can experience Issues with sight, hearing or sensitivity to noise and touch. A good eldercare companion is someone who is observant and attentive
