My mother is 47 years old & suffered a stroke about a year & a half ago. She is paralyzed on her right side & is unable to walk. However, she is pretty independent & can go around the house in her wheelchair & go to the bathroom herself. All we need is a person to come bathe her, dress her, prepare meals, make sure she's fed, & make sure the house is well kept. She has physical therapy appointments she needs to attend & errands to run occasionally just to restock on household supplies. She has a car of her own that you can use to do these things.
