Hi My Dad is 69 was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers about 4 ½ years ago now and is perfectly fit and healthy apart from the memory loss. He still lives alone and has a couple of people who go in twice a day most days to cook and clean for him. We would like to find a companion to move in permanently with him as we think the worst thing for him at the moment is the loneliness particularly in the evenings. He does get himself out and about during the day and visits family and friends but we think he would really benefit from having someone to chat to or watch TV with. We are really struggling to find a way of contacting any suitable candidates. We thought that he could provide a home for someone perhaps of a similar age who is also lonely and so the arrangement would benefit both parties. Has anyone else done the same thing and if so how did you go about it? By the way he lives in Kent!
