Our mom Barbara suffered a bad stroke due to health complications in March 2016. She has not recovered as well as we hoped and we (her kids) are still young so do not have the stability and means to provide what she needs. She is wheelchair and bed bound with a moderate to maximum level of assistance required for most activities. She lives in a Board and Care. She has a quick wit and great sense of humor. We are looking for a 2-3x a week companion who could take her out and about in their own car or via bus / Access Van. Nail salon, hair appointment, stroke support group, walk in the park, etc Additionally, Basic ADL- It is required that you can do this solo. Mental Stimulation - using her phone for brain game apps - memory/recall. Language Learning - It would be great to work on teaching her a language with support from Mango Languages app. Spanish or Armenian. Light Exercise/Stretching - She could use light exercise with leg lifts, massages, bends and stretches, etc Thank you
