Help in the morning to get ready for work?

Postby Gaaslaj » Thu Apr 10, 2014 10:26 am

My fiancée teaches at a community college. We do not live together yet, I live in a different town. She's been having difficulty getting out of bed, getting ready for work, and getting into her car. I was wondering if you know of a way for her to obtain assistance for those tasks. She does OK with the rest of her day. Thanks, John.

Welcome to ThisIsMS, John (Gaaslaj.

This is not my area of expertise; I know there are others here with a helpful background and I hope they will jump in with suggestions.

Might there be social services contacts available through the community college? Or through her doctor, or local hospital? Are there family members nearby who could help? If she attends a local church, perhaps the minister there could offer suggestions.

I admire you for trying to help her.

John,
When my son needed assistance for all the tasks you mention, he hired help from the internet.
There are a number of sites that have people looking for this kind of work.
I do not think that I can name them here, but if you PM me, I will
name them for you.
