Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Caregiver, my mother lives alone in a well situated neighbourhood in Ottawa Ontario. She is fiercely independent and doesn't not wish to live with her daughters or sons. She is willing to share a home with a young person that will be around in the evening in case of an emergency. She has cancer and diabetes and her doctor's say that she is experiencing symptoms of early dementia. She is physical active and walks everyday and is generous and kind and loves to learn.

Her closest daughter lives very close in Ottawa. Her other children are involved in her life and either visit or have weekly calls. they all respect her wishes to live independently but wish to find a compassionate and wise caregiver or flatmate that will live with her. She has been travelling back to her homeland Lebanon once a year (usually for 6 months) to work on the land and visit relatives.

Job Description

We would like the caregiver to be companion to my mother and be around at night because she fears that there will be no one around if something happens to her. Mostly she is worried about fluctuating blood sugar levels.

Another requirement is to have first aid training.

My mother is very independent and introverted and therefore not much companionship is required but a healthy compassionate and quiet atmosphere is required.

Given the early onset of dementia it is necessary to have some general background of this condition and later it may be necessary to go on walks with her. right now she walks daily on her own and that is her preference.
