Hello all,

My 76 y/o mom just moved in with us and after being independent for so many years (over 20) she is having a difficult time adjusting. She has Pulmonary Fibrosis (a terminal illness) and is in the beginnings of dementia. I'd like to fins someone who is willing to come over a few days a week who will sit with her and talk to her, take her to the store and just be her friend. How do you hire someone like that? She has refused elder day care flatly. She is never alone, but she needs more interaction during the day when I am at work. Does anyone have a suggestion. She is on oxygen and is very limited in what she can do. Thanks

What can I do next?

Look into adult day care. Don't know what burb you are in. Many park districts have it. Hospitals. Nursing homes have day care. Good for you not to worry, good for her to make new friends and have something to look forward to.

Hi S.,

I was just at a Women in Business Luncheon in Lisle yesterday, and one of the companies represented was Accucare Home Health of Lisle. They also have a branch called Innovative Homecare Solutions, Inc. where they provide personal care services and companionship services. I was impressed with the women representing the company. The staffing coordinator for Innovative is Eirene Adina. The phone number is ###-###-####. If you call, please let them know that you heard about them from someone who attended the Women in Business luncheon.
