  • Check out your Human Resources Dept for the Aging. In my state of Texas it is called Community Based Assistance and that program finds help for the seniors that need help in their homes. The CBA program as it's called comes through our Human Resources Dept for the Aging here in our town. Check it out. My parents have this program and they have a lady that comes every day for so many hours a day to help them. I could have taken the job myself but I thought it best to have a non-family member. It is working out great for my parents and doesn't cost them anything.
