I am wondering if any of you ladies would know if Iowa has a program where you can pay a nurse to take care of someone for an event. I am getting married march 23rd, and my grandma is going to be at the wedding. She lives in a nursing home but df and I want my mom to be able to relax at the wedding and not have to worry about accidents or anything. It's usually my mom and I that get my grandma around. She is 88. So as you can tell I won't be able to with my wedding dress and all. So anyone in Iowa that you can hire for a day? Would be compensated as well as dinner.
*update: I went to visit my grandma 2 weeks ago and I was talking to her about the wedding and that it would be nice if we had someone to help her and that my aunt k would be willing to split the bill with us. Well as I was saying this 2 of her nurses at the nursing home walked and the one said if she wasn't working that weekend then she would be willing to come help us. I'm happy we finally found someone. My grandma is ok with her doing it. Then we went to my uncle's and my aunt j said she cousin would be willing to come help C( the nurse) if she needed it. Her cousin used to work with C at the nursing home.
So it looks as if we have 2 nurses to help my grandma for our wedding! I'm so happy that my mom can relax and enjoy our day
