3 yrs ago I was trying to do it all by myself.. Then my Mom ended up in rehab for 2 mths after a terrible uti.. Everyone at hospital and rehab kept asking me if she had any home health coming in.. I had no idea what they were talking about..
Well they set her up with a case worker from our local Area of Aging and she has someone coming in 3 mornings a week for shower help... They also told me to call Senior center to get her involved in Day Support Program.. Which they recently started paying 5 days a week 9-3
Fast forward to today.. I recently got her on a Medicare home support waiver (MA it's Masshealth).. She now has Medicaid standard which covers all prescriptions, incontinence diapers and bed pads, Walker..
Icing on the cake is I just received a call from a different home care agency and she will be getting 2 hrs on Saturday and Sunday for bath and home health..
Just make the call to Area of Agency they will guide you through what is available..
You'll be so much happier and most important less stressed!!
