Hi Folks. My Uncle is 90, lives alone, and is in need of a number of services in the Burlingame area: a housecleaning service to come in once a week, an “organizer,” perhaps, and most importantly, a driver(s)/service to be on call during the day for perhaps one or two trips a day. (Breakfast or Lunch, then maybe shopping), etc.
Are there such services in the area. Our challenge: We are in NY, and only get out there once a month or less.
There are many organizations that could act as a concierge for your Uncle. There are two services that you can try – http://www.carelinx.com or http://www.care.com. Either one of those sites will help pair you with qualified people. Or you can try a more traditional route and use either a Geriatric Care Manager or Home Care Agency. Happy to talk further should you need more direction. – The ElderHub
