Live-In Senior Companion – Nice Berkeley Neighborhood - Free Rent, Modest Salary

We are looking for a companion for an 89 year old woman in North Berkeley. This is not a full-time job so if you have work outside the home or attend classes, that’s fine.

Room is furnished, quiet neighborhood, near BART. Included is on-site laundry, off street parking, housecleaning service, cable and wi-fi.

Primary responsibilities are errands, escorting to doctors and other appointments when possible, engaging in light conversation, meal prep and typical roommate duties/chores like helping to keep common areas clean.

In addition, keep in touch with 2 daughters (one in Bay Area, the other in NYC) so that they are kept informed of any problems. We are anxious to help mom remain independent, but we’re not there every day!

We prefer it if you have a car, but that is not a dealbreaker. Can also negotiate if you live nearby and prefer day work as opposed to live-in. Experience working with seniors is a plus!

Please send resume and a cover letter to
