Post Posted: Wed Nov 17, 2010 10:16 am

Am planning to move my 87 yr old mother and I to Mexico and am looking for info about in home care for her. Any ideas? And idea how much it would cost me for a live in who would need to bath her and "clean her"?

While I'm not exactly familiar with rates down there -- and I would think so much of it depends on what area -- I would bet you could get a live-in for very, very little money or an inexpensive day rate. Actually, a maid plus help with your mom could be the job description.

You might go to the American Embassy website for that area and ask them for information or suggestions -- or call them on the phone. You can also go to Google, put in the name of the city in Mexico you're moving to plus "elder care", "care for the elderly" and/or "Live in help".

Good luck! Keep searching and you will find your answers!
