Hello All - I am having a dilemma with my 92 yr old mother who is still sharp mentally, but almost blind. I have been her main caregiver for over 6 yrs now and although she is almost blind, she is still mobile and still lives in her own home. She still cooks simple meals for herself too. I take her to all her doctor appts, take her food shopping, take her for haircuts and other errands when she needs things. All this for over 6 yrs. Of course she wants to get out more for entertainment purposes like the movies, lunch, dinner etc. But all the other errands we do are getting to be too much for me now. I have health problems, I care for my grandson in the afternoon after school, and I have little time for me. I am currently looking into volunteer groups that may have someone to be a companion for her, and although she is not thrilled that I am not going too, she is willing to try to have outings with other people. My only thought of course is that she needs guidance everywhere she goes because she can’t see the ground well and she can’t see well inside. The desire is there to do things, but she is 92 and not that mobile because of her sight. She uses a cane to steady herself. She does have balance problems. Can anyone think of what I need to do to match her up with the right person to take her out occasionally? Is this a doable thing? Or is it hazardous for her? I’ve called churches, but I haven’t found any such volunteers. Senior centers are out for her because she can’t see well in the buildings and she can’t hear well with all the chatter and certainly can’t read the bingo cards etc. Anyone with any experience with this? I’m just not sure we are being realistic in believing this is a good idea.
