About who needs care: My mom an 88-year-old type 2 diabetic. In December of 2021 she had to have a lower leg amputation and has been in a skilled nursing facility where she has been performing physical and occupational therapy. We are both very disappointed in the care that she is receiving now and would like to bring her home. Her main needs are someone to help her transfer from her wheelchair to the bed and back to the toilet, and into her recliner. She weighs 165 and has a brand new Prosthesis that is quickly helping her to walk again.
She gets lonely with me at work all day and the companionship and conversation would be deeply appreciated.
