Looking for a caregiver couple (housing included)
Jan 12, 2022
Our very much cherished, Julie Knight, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s a few years. Many of you in our community may be familiar with her, and it feels important to share a little about her: Julie is is a loving caring mother of two now adult children. For many years she was the backbone and Director of Islands Oil Spill Association as well as Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on San Juan. Julie is only 60 and is very physically active. She enjoys walks, being in nature, and gardening with her small dog, "Holly." Julie is very sweet and typically has a very positive attitude .

Her family and friends have been helping to keep her happy and content at her home here on Lopez, where we hope she can continue to live out her life with the quality she deserves.

We are putting out the feelers for someone/a couple, that may have a interest in helping in this goal.

Ideally it would be someone’s that has experience dealing with someone with Alzheimer’s/Dementia

She currently has part time care, which we propose to continue as a way to help with breaks for a full time 24/7 caregiver situation.

We would offer a warm cozy 1,500 sq ft home, 3 bedroom, 1 bath. On 15 acres, with utilities + $1,000 per month.

Another option we are open to would be for her to be able to come into your home in a different scenario preferably on Lopez.

If any of this speaks to you please respond accordingly.

Much thanks
