Dad's been in the hospital for 16 days and they now want to move him to long term care with rehab 1 hour/day. He’s no longer on IV but isn’t eating much and it’s puréed food. Whenever I mention the memory care facility I had previously picked out, they tell me he needs long term care. I can understand needing rehab or some PT as he is very weak. I just don’t understand the difference. I guess I can always try what they have in mind and if it’s awful, just move him to memory care. He’s 93 and I don’t think he’s going to be able to rehab anyway. Maybe it’s because Medicare will pay for a few weeks of nursing home rehab “long term care”.
