I need to make a decision fast
A couple of days ago mom was diagnosed with dementia and while at the Drs office she fell and broke her femur/hip bone. She had emergency surgery and is still in the hospital. SHocking to us all she is now having sundown syndrom. She must have been hiding most of this very well. She will be going to rehab. Her insurance will stop in 20 days.........she falls between a gap. She is still in the process of a divorce and so there for her assets are tied up, because of that she will not qualify for medicaid. Thats problem #1. Problem #2 is that in the mornings she is kind of like herself and pleads not to go to a nursing home but by afternoon she is WOW a different person. I dont know what to do, I dont know if I should hire a stranger to come into our home to care for her and hope that they take care of her or let her live iwth strangers and plead and cry all day. UGH this is so hard, we have limited resources here and when I ask other family members for their opinion everyone says "I dont know". I am an only child I have POA. Any insight?
