I asked a similar question a few weeks ago of hiring vs. a friend, or compensating a friend, etc. I am not having any luck finding an organization or business that does companion care in nursing homes... has anybody used an organization or have any recommendations? I am moving soon and mom's memory is getting worse. She used to be a strong advocate for herself now she just gets frustrated and forgets. Even having trouble with her phone. The staff is not much help when I call.
