How did it work out and what was the ball park cost? My mother has dementia. She is age 86. She has been in and out of the hospital but is now in a palliative care unit arriving from a nursing home. Her meds appear to be controlled now and her demeanor is much calmer now. I do not want to send her back to a nursing home. I want to bring her home. However, I will need help and am looking more for a free-lance person. I know that we have to get referrals, background checks, etc. Hospice will teach me how to administer meds and I will be here when she needs to be turned in the bed. She is not ambulatory. This is would be the first time I have ever considered this and I'm reluctant. She has improved so much in palliative care that I want to try this.
Any help would be appreciated!
