WHAT TO DO????

Standard
NEED A LITTLE HELP HERE…Don’t be afraid
to voice your opinions….Know you must
get depressed reading all this bad news but…
 
Not sure what I am going to do but mom only
has 55 days left in her stay at the tendercare.
Do I bring her home with help or sign her up
for medicaid and keep her there for longer? Confused
I have a lot of experience with eldercare but
this time it may be more than I can handle.
 
Medicare insists on a 60 day break period between each
100 day stay in a facility. OH.. I didn’t know that..Thinking
no one explained it to me before quite that clearly.
So now I have to start thinking of what to do when
the time comes…
Guess I need more info or wait until we see how
mom progresses with her therapy or her next
procedure. She fell last night and hurt her knee
when she tried to get up and could not stand on her
own..She forgot she was weak.
Worried YES.. I am.. they put all kinds of alarms
on her today and her bed so she cannot do anything
without them knowing. That will help..but what kind
of problems will occur from the fall I don’t know.?
 
Appreciate any thoughts you all may have on this
as right now I am tired and sometimes miss the most
easy or clear thing that is right in front of me. Sleepy
 
As in the past, I value and welcome all your experience
or thougths and opinions on what is happening with
mom.

  1. Sorry I have not been here lately, putter problems. I second Beth. Also when I have a major decision I try to get as much info and I write pros + cons down on paper. Sometimes seeing it helps. I will pray for you, and your mom.
