Personal assistance is needed for my mother who is elderly, hard of hearing and quite frail. This will involve care for 1 hour in the morning (9am) to help with getting out of bed, washing, taking medication, and preparing and serving breakfast.
In the early evening, a further hour of support is needed to serve (not prepare) an evening meal and help with preparing for bed. Assistance with other tasks may also be required, as needs arise.
My mother has recently returned from hospital after suffering an acute chest infection, but is now gradually recovering.
Initially, support is required for 3/4 days per week, but this may increase in the future
