Mom has had so many things happen recently that required trips to the ER, tests, visits to her doc., etc. This has left her weak and in pain from a shoulder injury. She lives independently and if she does not get her strength and mobility back, I fear that she will not be able to live as she wishes. The rehab centers say that she needs a 3-night hospital stay before she is elligible for Medicare rehab. She could probably get an in-home PT but she still could not be alone all day. We can manage some in-home care for her, but cannot do this all day, every day until she heals.
If you have dealt with a similar issue recently, I would appreciate your input. What do I do if she cannot be in her home for now?
thanks,
Lilli

She might qualify for a stay at a standalone inpatient rehab facility if she can do three hours of therapy a day and has a diagnosis that will get her a reasonable number of days there. then she could go on to subacute rehab. Stroke, Parkinson's, MI are someexamples of qualifying diagnosis. You could inquire at a Health South or similar facility. If you have to go private pay assisted living, they wil often do 2-3 times a week therapies on site that may be covered though the stay itself is not.

Anyone?? Is there an alternative to rehab that involves a 3-day stay in the hospital and Medicare covers?
