Homemaker Services for Arzelia Lutch

Homemaker Services for Arzelia Lutch
Details:

My aunt has not had a homemaker for over 2 weeks. She is a bilateral amputee, insulin dependent diabetic, with visual impairment, and unable to perform needed housekeeping services or her ADL's independently. She now has three boils in her head, the house smells of urine, and is filthy. I live in Louisiana and while I was prior to my mother's ill health able to come down and do a general cleaning monthly we are (I, my sister and mom) no longer able to do that because of my mom's health as previously stated. That does not mean we don't care as demonstrated by the appliances we just purchased and had shipped to her home to make life easier for her. We can't truly make life better for her without your help
