My Mom is 89, and is fairly capable with day to day duties. She can dress and bathe herself, she just might need a reminder from time to time. She can also feed herself, but she cannot prepare food. Her house is probably cleaner than an house you have ever been in. She has OCD and cleaning is what makes her happy. Outside of that, she has no interests or hobbies, including watching tv. She lives alone in a condo building. She would need someone to take out her trash, help her do laundry, and bring food to her, although I am trying to set up meals on wheels for her. Maybe once in a week get a few items at the grocery store. Hours are very flexible, days are very flexible. She does not need every day care, necessarily. She just needs someone part time, to help out.
