My mom is in the mid stages of dementia and has a bad hip. I have been very worried about her living alone for some time. A couple of weeks ago she had to have emergency surgery for a hernia and obstructed bowel and is now in a nursing home recovering. What I thought at first was bad turned into a blessing in disguise. Now her Doctor can order home health care to continue to help her improve and maintain her strength and Medicare will cover it! So now when she does go home someone will be in the home with her a few times a week and she will not be all alone all week waiting for me to come on Saturdays. YAY!!!
