I just received a call from my county's home chore services program. They've arranged for someone to come in starting June 18th from 2-6 pm to help with light cleaning and laundry, possibly more! I have no idea how I ever even figured out this program existed, or how I got in touch with them. Maybe somebody made calls for me; maybe I had a good day, looked in the phone book under anything that had "disability" in the name, and made the calls. I was put on a wait list, and was asked if I still was interested a year later. Patience pays off. Well, apparently I qualify. The county will pay part or all of the cost, depending on my income and assets. I need to get that paperwork to them ASAP. The moral of the story is: If you need help, see if your local area has something like this. You might be pleasantly surprised!
