I will offer a suggestion however know that I'm not a professional in the field, just someone with a contribution. Is there a college anywhere near where you live. It could be a junior college or four year school. If so, visit their administrative offices/counseling center to inquire if they would post a notice on the jobs bulletin board for a volunteer who needs accommodations and a small stipend in return for assisting you and your mom. The student would attend classes however classes are not usually five days a week, 8 hours per day. They may have zero classes one or two days a week and some days classes for only four hours per day. This type of schedule might work for you and your mom if you can be flexible/accommodating. Have you also thought about signing up your mom for the Meal on Wheels Program that most communities now have. There is often a waiting list but eventually they will have an opening. Talk to your friends and co-workers for their input also. Ideas/referrals from friends is a better way to go versus running an ad in the newspaper, which I consider risky in the day and age in which we live. I hope these suggestions help. Something is bound to turn up if you pursue every lead.
