Hello All! My mother in-law is being discharged this coming week from the hospital. She has been bedridden for a few weeks and needs to build strength in her legs back up and she currently needs assistance to walk.
My MIL lives in a group home with one other person and 2 staff members at all times (so pretty much 1:1 attention). If we put her in a rehab facility for the short-term, we risk losing her bed at the group home (she’s in Medicaid/Title 19). We were thinking about seeing if we have the option of a visiting Occupational Therapist/PT come to the group home and I was wondering if anyone had experience with this versus a Rehab center. The thing we struggle with is if she’d really get more rehab at a facility versus at home as when she had a compound fracture and was in a rehab facility she says she only worked with the rehab staff every other day (However her memory is not always correct).
Thanks in advance!
