My hours have increased; however, there is only so much to do. I am with the care receiver two days a week and for six hours each day. I shop for groceries and change her bed on a weekly basis. I am a companion and not a housekeeper, although I don't mind organizing etc. Please advise as to what I could assist with during these hours. I do sit and talk with her, but I also want to be of service to her. There are some things that she insists upon doing......i.e. the laundry, and preparing her own meals, which consists really of microwaving items, e.g. oatmeal for breakfast, Lean Cuisine meals for dinner.
