He has been here 9 days and the figuring things out is slow going. Tomorrow a case manager comes from the local aging department. What should I be asking? What should I be setting up? How do I know I'm not forgetting something important? How do I manage the daily care efficiently? Fall prevention is looking like a big issue. I've managed to keep him alive for the last 9 days but I am more than a little frightened. He is really healthy, no meds other than vitamins, recovering from a major leg surgery and complications, plus what looks like COPD.
I've worked as a caregiver but have never had to do the planning and organizing part.
Any pointers or ideas would be very appreciated.
