My Mother of 69 yrs. has been released to a skilled nursing faciltiy for rehab from a stroke and brain seizures.
She has been in and out of the hospital since she had a gastric sleeve done back in November of 2013. 10 times, to be exact.
I am the oldest of four kids and have had to take on the role of all four of us to due the fact the one lives out of state and the other two are just "too busy" to even call her.
I have been there for her everyday that she was and is in the hospital, but I have had to miss a lot of work to be able to do so.
My Mom has always been a loner and has no friends nor is she involved in a church.
My question is, who or what services are available for her to have a companion sit with her for a few hours a day while she is in the nursing faciltiy that does not cost any money?
She is extremely lonely and has expressed to me that she wants me to be there with her everyday.
Are there volunteer services out there or churches that offer such a service at no charge?
Thanks so much.
