My aunt recently died and my uncle is now living on his own in another city and not managing too well. He’s never cooked, done laundry or housework. Is there someone I can call who can teach him or help him each day?
Using an accredited homecare agency to assist your uncle in his day-to-day activities is one way to help him manage. An agency will send someone to your uncle who can assist him with laundry, housework and meals. You can also arrange for something like Meals on Wheels, which has the added benefit of ensuring that someone will be seeing him daily. Is he connected with a church? Most churches have volunteer organizations that will assist people in their homes, as well as having friendly visitor programs.
