About this Care Recipient

My grandmother is almost 93 years old and recently moved into the mother-in-law apartment at my parent's house. She was hospitalized from September 3rd, 2015 until January 17th, 2016; and is still working on regaining her strength and mobility after a massive abdominal surgery toward the end of 2015. My mother works full time; and my father is an artist working from home, managing his own health issues. Thus far he has been able to take care of my grandmother with daily help from the various practitioners lined up for the first 60 days from the hospital. Looking past that, we need to connect with someone who can help day-to-day, multiple times a week, or as needed scheduled out; perhaps overlapping with the practitioners finishing up from the hospital.
