Without help — everything is hard
Meet Maria. Maria is 82, and she cannot manage alone.
Maria needs someone to cook, clean, and shop. She needs someone to manage her bills, monitor her medications and take her to doctors' appointments. She needs a kind person to help her bathe, groom, and get around.
She got an agency aide for a while, but it didn’t work out.
(The aide looked like she'd rather be anywhere else.)
Maria is sick of getting a new aide every three weeks. She needs someone reliable, for the long term.
Someone she trusts.
Someone who cares.
Someone who won’t watch TV all day.
Meet Julia, her daughter.
Julia is 48 years old, and she’s sick with worry. She knows that many agency aides don’t have her mom’s best interests at heart.
But she can’t afford to take off more hours from work.
Mom needs someone who’ll help her maintain her diet and go to critical medical appointments.
Mom needs someone who’ll ensure that she’s groomed, stimulated, and well-nourished at all times.
Mom needs someone who isn’t doing the bare minimum. Someone who will bring her real JOY.
What if Julia could afford to take care of Maria — and ensure her mom’s greatest quality of life?
Now, she can!
With CDPAP by Freedom Care, your loved ones can get paid for the care they give...and spend even more (paid) time bringing you joy.Read all faqs
