We are trying to figure out whether my grandmother can make the wedding. Mentally and medically she is fine, but she has PLS and has very limited mobility. She would need help getting ready for bed at night (changing, going to the bathroom, etc), someone to sleep in her room in case she needs to use the restroom at night, and to help her get ready in the morning. And they would need to be able to speak English. Family would help her during the day.

 

We are contemplating bringing an attendant down with her to stay with her in her room but that will get expensive paying for an additional person's stay and flight in addition to hers. So we are trying to see if it would be possible to hire someone in PV to do it.

 

Has anyone dealt with anything like this? Does anyone know of any agencies in PV that provide this type of service? Or where we could find out? I don't know where to even begin to find out.

 

Thanks!!

 

Jamie

Have you guys asked your wc's if they can do some research for you?

 

I would also go to PV expat forums and put your question out there. The members tend to be helpful and have good connections in PV that speak English as well. Good luck :)

Thanks for all of the suggestions! My grandma has decided it's just too much for her, but before that we did the math and because we are staying at an AI, the cost of having someone from PV would pretty much cost the same as bringing someone down that works with her normally (since we had to pay the lodging price regardless and the normal person was willing to come for just the price of expenses - the plane ticket worked out to the same as what we would be paying someone in PV). Anyway, just some things to think about if you are staying at an AI.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
