Mother fell at home a few weeks ago and was taken to the hospital and then sent to a local (5 mi. away) NH. The staff there told me that she absolutely needs 24/7 care. There's no way for me to provide that because I work 40/hrs./wk. The I'm an only child and have no siblings to help me. The last 6 months have been hell on earth for me because of Mom's frailty and worsening dementia.
