Find Care & Housing
Do you want a single person that will perform all of these duties? I think you will have a hard time finding that.

Or do you mean a home aid that comes in several times a week? You can contact your local area on aging and they should be able to help you.

I think that hiring a company that will come out and give you a firm quote for yard work will be your safest route, my stepmom never even talks to her crew. They show up on a scheduled day, do her yard and the company mails her a bill monthly.

Depending on what you want done in the house, a service would also be safer, licensed, bonded and insured. You can have them come in 1 to 4 times a month to do the deep cleaning that makes the house sparkling or you can get a light job. I recommend at least once a month for a deep cleaning and you will find that it keeps it up pretty well. When I was working and entertaining a lot, I needed every 2 weeks to keep things up, now I am sure once a month (every 4 weeks) would be great.

You just need to interview and get quotes from 3 minimum of each service, then give them a shot. Never sign any long term contracts, you don't want to be stuck with a rotten company.

Be sure and lock up any valuables, wallet, purse, cash, jewelry, don't want to entice anyone.

For inside, contact local home support companies. For outside, get a landscaping company to come cut the lawns etc.

But you may also want to consider moving into a place where that is taken care of for you.
