This happened to my mother almost two years ago. I had to stay with her for over a week. She needed help with everything. The dr. said someone needed to be with her, because she gave her a strong medication.
I will not do this again. She was extremely controlling, and now says that I did not stay with her for that long (she says MY memory is bad). So what happens if I have to take her to the dr. and the same thing happens? (She doesn't know how it happened last time, so it could happen again.)
Is my only option to hire someone to stay with her from an agency? There is no Medicare-paid rehab center because there was no qualifying 3-day hospital stay, correct? I'm assuming that the hired caregiver would be full-pay and not covered by insurance (she has Medicare plus a supplement from my father's former employer)?
