My mother suffered a stroke a year ago which robbed her of most of her memory and ability to communicate. She is also fairly blind. She is in a memory care facility and gets some care and companionship from the CNA's there but it's not a lot. They herd the residents into the TV area and monitor them and don't offer any individual activity support. Mom prefers to stay in her room. I am able to visit her 3x a week (2 hours or so each time) but I would like to find someone who can provide her some companionship and stimulation for several more hours per week. Someone who could read to her, listen to music, practice walking, take her outdoors and provide some eating assistance.
In the past when we've hired an agency they send a revolving cast of helpers, who mostly sit there looking at their phones instead of providing the help she needs.
Any advice is appreciated.
