About this Care Recipient

My sister is 74 years old. She has nodules on her thyroid, had aortic valve replacement, diagnosed with early dementia, but is in relatively good health otherwise. She has stopped doing her laundry and is not keeping up with her housekeeping, paperwork, and probably paying her bills on time. She is still driving, but I would like to provide her with transportation to the grocery store and her doctor's appointments o she doesn't have to drive as her skills have diminished and her short term memory is not good. It would be good to have someone walk or do some mild exercise with her as well to keep her active. She does have a cat in the home.
