My mom goes home on Friday after a stroke 4 mos ago that had her in rehab followed by a few weeks in the SNF. She's lived alone for 35 years, so this is a massive change, and will no doubt be a huge transition. I have been living, eating and breathing nothing else for the past few weeks. I'll be there all day Friday, meeting the caregiver, the nurse who does an assessment, etc. I'm thinking I'll stay over the first night. Is that a good idea? Or should I leave her alone with this complete stranger? So confusing. If I'm there, do I make dinner? Do we all eat together? I assume that in a few weeks a routine will be set, but just anticipating the first few days. Her BF will visit, but not until the following weekend, as he needs foot surgery.
