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?
