I know exactly what he's looking for, as are so many of us are. Someone to dine with, laugh with, and enjoy conversing with each other regarding any number of topics. Someone to listen and laugh, and just be yourself.

HI Bert again. Please overlook the typos. I have arthritis in my hands. But that is no excuse for not finding and correcting them. Maybe I am in the right place after all. ha! Verna

Hi Burt. I think you should seek advice from good friends are family members. Some flozzy might want to take advantage from a good looking man like you. When my husband died, by daughter from a previous husband wanted me to move to be near her or my son. I was living in independent living , first in NC where my son and family live and then in Washington state where my daughter lives. I am not in an assistant living in Vancouver, WA, I didn't think I was ready for that even though I am 83. I could not afford it if I were not a veteran. WAC
I hope you find the right person. It would be cheaper to hire a person to come in an clean and cook some meal, but if you are able, get out and meet some folks for companionship.

Who knows maybe he found a lovely energetic lady and is way too busy with her, to be posting here. I bet there are at least some ladies who would love to be a replacement for 4 walls that don't talk....

Ellelenn, I read his profile... he filled it out like he was on a dating website :0

I don't know why this posting was recycled, someone answering must have found it under "Forum Topic" which is up on the blue bar at near the top of the page under the header "Caregiver Forum".

I wonder why it just popped up now? Odd.... I didn't look at his request for a companion, as a significant other, but more as a companion care home aid....

The original posting by Bert was back in 2011, chances are he either found someone to help with the household chores or he has moved onto a retirement village. I don't know too many single women Bert's age who would want to be a companion plus be his housekeeper. It's either one or the other.

Hi Bert,
Maybe you can contact your cities Area of Aging services and they might be able to find out other seniors who are looking for a roomate. Seems that is what you are looking for and hot a home healthcare giver at this timeframe. I would find out by going to some Senior events or coordinators or churchs in the community if they have senior ladies looking for housing due to they cannot take care of an entire house any longer...just an idea. Keep us informed Bert of your quest!!!

Good Luck!

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply you were ready for a senior citizen home. I think I used the wrong term - maybe it is not assisted living, but maybe it is active adult community, where they have housekeepers and a community dining room and pools, movies and entertainment and go out on trips to theater, etc. If you lived in the same community with other active adults maybe you could find a companion with the same interests. Maybe some on this site can tell you about them if they have family members living in them. But, if you prefer to stay in your home, good luck in your search! You may want to Have whoever you consider screened by getting a background check report for criminal record, etc.

I certainly appreciate your help. No, I am not ready to go to a senior citizen home!! I am still very active, not senile, traveling, cruising, driving. All I need is a companion, because the four walls in my home are not talking back to me!! I would enjoy and appreciate a life person of the opposite sex join me in my nice home.

If you are looking for live in paid help to help with household chores, you may want to go through an licensed agency instead of trying to screen by yourself a total stranger who answers a posting from you. Check to see if your state licenses home health care agencies and also contact your local area agency on aging. Have you considered moving into assisted assisted living as an alternative? Or do you have any friends who are using an agency that might recommend one for you.

Bert: first let me say that I am sorry that you lost your wife. 65 years of marriage is long time,and I am sure we all understand how lonely you must feel.

It seems you are rather computer savvy (bravo) so do a search for 'live-in' companions using Google or any other search tool. That should help.

Post something on your facebook page. You can make all sorts of contacts on facebook! Go to communities centers, and help out. Who knows, maybe you will find someone there?

God Bless.

Most of the people here are caregivers, caring for their own family or spouse, but we all can certainly understand your loneliness.

You would have to describe the problem by typing more details of it in here. I agree - this is a good web site, people will provide answers as they can out of their own knowledge and experience.
