The place to start is with your mother's health care provider. If your mother is on Medicare or Medicaid, her Doctor can order in-home health assistance for her. The nurses in the Doctor's office would connect you with in-home care agencies.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.
