"Unexpectedly, my 89-year old mom had to be in the hospital for almost 2-weeks due to gallbladder complications. She lost much of her energy, strength and willpower as she laid in the hospital bed. When we finally received word that she would be discharged, I started scrambling looking at various options. This was new territory to me since mom had never required outside care before. I knew mom wanted to be home but I felt unqualified to give her the care and motivation she needed. That was when Caring.Com referred me to Senior Helpers. When I called, Jenny answered the phone and gave me an immediate sense of relief. She even came to the hospital to meet my mother and determine what the needs would be. The next day, Jenny and the helper were at my house ready to welcome my mother home. They stayed for almost 4-weeks while mom progressed from a wheelchair to a walker and then a cane - and she continues to get stronger.
