Just wondering if any of you wise people here can help me brainstorm. My mother is immobile in a wheelchair after a serious septic infection last November. She can ambulate with her feet but cannot even stand alone.
She thinks PT will help her. They do not. I have a call in to them to inquire what it would cost out of pocket for them to work with her more. They are not rushing to return my call even though I have clearly stated I understand this would be a cost we would pay for.
My mother has often had a lack of realism. I do feel though that I should try to help her until it may prove fruitless which is likely.
I realistically can only take this to a certain level as she is on private pay which is a little over 9,000 a month and the fund we are drawing from could run out depending on how long she lives.
While I want to give her a sense of hope I also have to factor her lifelong lack of reality. I have posted before that this has become my worst nightmare. She has been overweight for years. Oddly now she is losing some weight but not any large amount. I do not say "I told you so" even though I think that. Some previous calls to PT have gone unanswered but awhile back when I inquired about this they actually said not to waste the money. I will continue to pursue the cost issue. I guess I am wondering what my position would be if they flat out refuse regardless of my willingness to pay.
