  Job Description
Hi There!

I am getting married September 6th 2014 (out of town, about 3 hours north). I am looking for a companion for my 90 year old Grandmother, to chaperone her from Saturday Sept 6th to Sunday Sept7th.

Let me tell you about Grandma! She is 90, she is a hoot! She lives independently, walks with a cane and is a bit deaf. She is incredibly sweet. She has had a few health scares but recently her health has been quite good. Grandma is nearly 99.9 independent, but it's that fraction of a percent I am hiring a companion for.

My mother is typically the sole caregiver for my grandmother. Quite frankly I want my mom to be stress free on my wedding day, and I want all her attention on me (the bride :). Knowing we have a companion to make sure Grandma is safe all night means the whole family can cut loose. If you're still reading this, here is a detailed outline of what we would require for this wedding, companion event.

You will need to have your own car, and drivers license. We can discuss what is fair for mileage reimbursement. We would hope you can pick up my Grandmother in Burlington Saturday morning, drive up to the cottage, which is about 3 hours (and you may need to stop for the washroom, knowing grandma). Once you arrive at the cottage the wedding ceremony is at one o'clock.

We will arrange a hotel for grandma and for yourself. You can check in to the hotel after the ceremony. There is a break until the reception at 5 pm.

At the reception Grandma will need you to grab her plates of food (dinner is family style), refill her drinks (she likes wine!! She has a pretty good tolerance, she might get a little drunk), and assist her to the washroom. She doesn't need help IN the washroom typically, just walking, she uses a cane and has a limp from a stroke. We REALLY want to avoid a fall (especially if she's drinking).

After the reception you will need to ensure grandma gets a ride back to her hotel room and gets inside safely.

Sunday there are some wedding related events, we can discuss your availability for those. Grandma will need a ride back home from the cottage Sunday.

And thats it. It really will be a fun, easy event for the companion we hire. Compensation is negotiable. Looking forward to hearing from you.
