I am in need of some help with my almost 90 year old mother who lives in her house in Tulip Hill (Goldsboro Road/Mass Ave/Glen Echo) area of Bethesda a couple of times a week. This is really simple, quick help - she is too frail to set the lawn sprinkler, weed around her garden (there isn't much once the initial weeding is done), bring the newspaper inside, bring up the trash cans to the side of the house from the curb, bring stuff upstairs from the basement (I hate that she still goes up and down the stairs in the house). She is not sick. She doesn't want someone to sit and chat. She had a stroke 10 years ago and was left with aphasia (the inability to speak well and say what she means) and she can lose her balance if she isn't careful.
She lives in the house mostly by herself although my brother also inhabits the basement. He isn't seen much and does absolutely nothing for her around the house or outside which is why I need someone to help me. I get there several times a week most weeks but I can't get there to do this kind of stuff.
This doesn't pay much but it will pay about $20 for each trip you make based upon the schedule we set up.
If you are interested, please call me at 240-893-9469.
