We need a “Sitter” for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am - 3:30 pm at a private home in Cazenovia.

Also stopping for any errands should there be any (like picking up a prescription from a pharmacy or going to mail a letter for her at the post office). You would then make sure she gets upstairs safely.
