I think overall my mom is doing well. There are concerns about her losing weight. Also concerned if she is bathing brushing teeth. Her apartment was cleaned but no hand soap in bathroom. I moved the hand soap from her kitchen to her bathroom. There was no toothbrush. She looked good and she was happy and her apartment was very clean. Thank you for taking care of my mom
