Can anyone share experiences with home health care in the Chapala area: For example, are there any agencies that supervise home health care assistants, so the labor requirements are met, and you don't have to deal with them yourself? What is the going hourly or daily rate? Are you satisfied with the home assistance you've paid for? -- In other words, any and all relevant, practical information, advice, concerns. Many thanks!
My husband is a youngish man suffering from dementia and other medial conditions. He doesn't qualify for assisted living. I need assistance occasionally as well, so after looking extensively at alternatives at Lakeside, I would like to try to find someone to live in, cook light meals, and assist us. But I have no idea how much this would cost us. We would pay a fair wage along with IMSS, but we don't know what a "fair wage" is. It does not have to be and RN, and some English would be appreciated. Any one have ideas or suggestions on this?
I assisted someone today who is renting to a woman with failing health. She is having a hard time managing the house they rented to her. I don't think she is ready to admit she needs care. She does have a cleaning lady 2x week, and a handyman. In the states, we would call Adult Protective Services to initiate support services and evaluation of folks getting too old to care for self. Many elders love to preserve their freedom, I surely would be one of those. I empathize. The person is "an accident waiting to happen". I do not know her personally, so please don't suggest I intervene. I merely served as a language interpreter. Any suggestions as to what might be out there for someone like this. I know of the list of places for folks, don't need that. It seems sad that I am seeing the only alternative she'd accept is another broken bone.
