My mom (a very young 70) is living with my family (me, my husband, and our two kids) while she recovers from back surgery. I've been able to help her while working from home since her surgery 3 weeks ago, but I will need to be out of the house for longer periods during the weeks of July 17-21 and July 24-28.
She is reasonably independent (can walk well and mostly prepare her own meals), but she cannot bend, twist, or lift more than 5 pounds at a time. She needs a couple of hours of help every day to:
1) walk safely up and down the front steps for her daily walks,
2) undress/dress before/after showers and be supervised during showers so she doesn't fall,
3) assemble and help prepare lunch and load the dishwasher afterwards.
