Companion/Hands-on Care for 77 Year-Old Retired Professor with Alzheimer’s Disease and Impaired Mobility - We are looking for care for my husband, a former NMU professor in his late 70's. He has Alzheimer's disease and Post-Polio Syndrome and is enrolled in hospice.  He requires supervision/companionship mostly to prevent falls (He wants to stand up and forgets that he can’t). We are hoping to have someone spend time with him 4-5 days a week for 4-6 hours and are flexible about days and times. He has a Foley catheter and requires supervision & assistance getting to the bathroom/commode for bowel movements. Most often, someone simply needs to be present to monitor him, prevent falls and perhaps prepare simple meals. It is likely there would be some down time where one could complete schoolwork, etc. A hospice RN visits at least once a week, and a care aide twice. My adult daughter and I both live in the home and will be responsible for the majority of care, including nights. We may be home during the caregiver’s hours, as well, and available to help as needed--we just need to be able to safely leave the room, get work done, run errands, etc. 

Compensation—2 options:  Option 1) Room & board (board=groceries) plus a generous weekly cash stipend in exchange for 25 hours caregiving per week. Days and hours are flexible. Additional hours would be compensated on an hourly basis. The “room” is 2nd floor private quarters consisting of bedroom, bathroom & living room. The 2nd floor laundry is shared, as is the well-equipped, 1st floor kitchen. The space would easily work for a couple, with the stipend increased for an additional number of hours spent on tasks such as snow removal, yard work, cleaning, etc. We would also welcome a friendly, solidly house-trained, well-behaved dog, though we don’t have a fenced in yard. Move in would be available after January 1st though there is room for flexibility on this.  Option 2) Hourly compensation for 25 hours caregiving per week, rate commensurate with experience.
