About this Care Recipient

Mom will be 91 in June and lives alone in Middletown, CT. Despite having Hospice Homecare 4 days a week for 1 hour she has finally accepted the fact that she needs more help and she is scared to be alone. My brother and sister-in-law live next door and do a lot for her but they both work and it is becoming increasingly more difficult to care for her. I live in California and get there as much as I can but is certainly not with the consistency that she needs. We would continue with the Hospice care to check her medically but she just needs the peace of mind of having someone there especially at night. Her mind is amazingly sharp and she likes conversing with people. There is a spacious bedroom and bathroom for a live-in.
