"If you ever find yourself in the predicament I experienced recently, you should know there is a not so well known solution. I had to undergo a medical procedure that required another person to be with me during the entire appointment. It was difficult finding an answer to my dilemma as no one was available to accompany me.
I posted an ad on a website that serves as a job locating site for home health aides working as independent contractors. I received a couple of responses. But their offers were expensive and unenthusiastic. They were primarily looking for repetitive assignments with a single client.
Fortunately, my post came to the attention of a representative of Seniors Helping Seniors(SHS). An organization of senior volunteers who help other seniors with a variety of needs. We arranged a brief meeting to talk further, get acquainted, explore requirements and expectations. An easily negotiated arrangement was the quick result.
Mr. Ribeiro was professional and friendly throughout the experience. His communication was prompt and reassuring. My anxiety about keeping and attending my appointment was eliminated.
I highly recommend to anyone in southeast Michigan seeking a reliable, competent and safe connection for a similar situation, please contact Mr. Ribeiro at SHS. Should I need such assistance in the future, I will call upon Seniors Helping Seniors again.
