What alternatives are out there to help an elderly person be transported to and assisted through doctor appointments when family can't do it? She needs someone to speak up to the doctor and set the record straight when she lies about things as well. She's very quick to say things are fine when they aren't. The paid in-home help I have found charges about twenty dollars an hour and some her appointments go three hours long - I don't think there's any way she'd pay $60! And yet sometimes due to work I just simply cannot do it and she has so many appointments. I'm sure other people have had this same problem too, but I didn't have much luck searching old threads. Any ideas?
