Mother has been bedridden since a fall in mid-2011. Her (female) doctor had her put in a SNF (skilled nursing facility), but the insurance ran out before she was able to complete any kind of rehab. Unless the MD changes her mind, mom can't qualify for covered home-care unless she goes back into a (likely different) SNF for another cycle, which she doesn't want. Finding appropriate people to take care of her sanitary needs is rapidly reaching a crisis, not so much cost as availability. Nobody else in the family has thought to tell the MD what's been going on, and I'm fearful of reprisals if I try to do so. Dad, I and my oldest brother all have our own health issues, and none of us want to handle the sanitary part. Only my youngest brother might have the guts to contact the MD, but he isn't tipping his hand.
