Job Description

Need someone trustworthy part time. Dad is very active. Walks, cooks, cleans, golfs, pays bills etc. Recently diagnosed with PPA semantic variant. Effecting the left side of his brain, communication is challenged, often he mixes up words or fails to find one and sentences often lack substance or loop. His intellectual capacity is good, he just has trouble with specifics. People often mistake his speech for a sign of an emergency, like a stroke or a fall. Pending a driving evaluation, he will need transportation to the grocery store, golf course, library etc. Additionally, this is a progressive disease, so keeping an eye out for any signs that his condition has worsened will be essential. This being a rare form of the Alzheimer’s Disease, experience with dementia, Alzheimer’s or PPA (primary progressive aphasia) is important. As condition worsens level of care will most likely increase.
