Rehab pushing my mom into nursing home she doesn't need.
The rehab hospital my mom is at currently has been making references to my mom moving into their "assisted living" if she can't move back to her apartment. Their assisted living is really in name only. It is nursing home rooms where they can't have their things like the rest of the nursing home is. The rehab therapy people work for a different company but are at the rehab facility. They seem confident she can do the things needed to go home by the time she is done there. So the facility side of the rehab hospital trying to push her over to their nursing home is a bit ghoulish. They presented it to her as her only other option. Even though we have assisted living options in town if she needs them, they just don't run them. This of course has my mom rather freaked out.
We think she will be able to move back to her senior apartment with some home health care and be ok. The apartment thinks she is capable. So the facility acting counter to her goals is a bit worrying. The facility fought her about allowing her to move herself from her wheelchair to her chair in her room even though she had been doing it on her own for weeks. She just ignored them and did it anyway and they eventually dropped the issue. Now they don't want her getting up to go to the bathroom at night on her own. They cited her being groggy and possibly dizzy when she first wakes up. So I don't know if this is good caution or holding her back?
