My friend just had to have her bladder removed- cancer. She ran into several complications and ended up in the hospital for 5 weeks. They made no effort to get her up and moving so her muscles atrophied.
Now she is in rehab- and improving slowly but improving. They informed her that she is moving too slow- and told her she would be released mid-Nov.
Where does she go? She lives alone- lives on ss- and a bit of help from her daughters who both live in Texas....and are not very supportive...so what is she to do?
I believe she will recover enough to be alone again but for the moment she needs in home help. Putting her into a nursing home will be a disaster....nobody ever fares well in those places and with covid- its worse. Medicare does not cover much in home care- and I believe its unsafe for her to be home alone all the time
If anyone can advise me how I can help her or what possible options are- I would greatly appreciate it. My heart goes out to her and I find her daughters awful. They blame her for her slow recovery.
