  • You can put an ad in craigslist, put up flyers at the grocery store, go to assisted living facilities, and places like that to get the word out.

  • You can also look at care.com. There are several job categories and also you can post your profile. Use the pulldown to see all the categories and look them over carefully because sometimes moms will combine needing help with errands with childcare, etc. Plus don't forget to look at the "care gigs" section.

  • Talk to your local Dr's offices and pharmacies. Tell them you are wanting to do this type of work. They talk to a lot of older folk that cannot get out of their homes.

  • A Friend of mine has found great jobs like that on Craigslist, however there are a lot of scams on there as well. I agree with another Mom to check with your local Church.
