Is there a home care service that will send someone out to just change a diaper?

i've been told by a couple nurses that there are agencies that will send someone out to change disposables even if it's the only reason they're being sent. but yet i can't find ANY agency that does this..my mother needs changing as her regular help is going to be gone for a day and a half..my mother will not let me(her son) clean and change her(and i don't blame her really.i wouldn't want to..she's not got dementia or old timers or any other type of illness..she has a broken leg and has been in therapy and has to wear disposables til she can use her good leg again..but i can't find an agency that will send someone out for the sole reason of changing them. i ahve checked the internet of course as well as made phone calls to various care agencies.nobody's been very helpful so far.

Aha! There's a new paradigm for advertising apparently. Pretend to be 2 posters; first persona asks a question; second one answers with an advertisement plug.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll check that from now on, although the spammers can easily create fictitious posts and residence areas.

You know, it really is kind of sad that someone thinks business could be created from that kind of online posting. I hope they're not sole proprietors!

GardenArtist, I thought it was interesting that the original poster and the person who posting the advertisement [which has been since removed] were from the same metro area.

Don't any of these commercial posters ever both to read the TOS? I guess not.
Post was reported.

Understandably there usually is a minimum fee/hours that an agency will accept, so while they may indeed come just to change a diaper you will have to pay for the minimum... X hours of care, X days etc.
