She can no longer walk on her own, she has a dropped foot. Her head has now fallen to her chest, which she can no longer lift it up. And I found her this last sunday sitting on her couch in a puddle of blood, i called 911 and they took her to the hospital. I guess Im just wondering if there is any help for her. I know if she gets out of hospital she wont be able to care for her self. she was bleeding from her vaginia, she doesnt eat enough if anything, because she would rather drink.

One thing to note, the hospital will not let her go home by herself. Someone will need to come to pick her up. Hopefully someone from her family. If she still is of sound mind, meaning she can think for herself, she will let the hospital whom to call.

If the hospital calls you, decline even though you want to help. Otherwise you might find yourself being her responsibility, and you don't want to do that. It could turn into 168 hours a week responsibility.

I hope your neighbor doesn't have any pets.

I'm not sure what t o tell you once she leaves the hospital but for hospital bills they have financial aid for which is easy to qualify. an application is usually on the back of each bill that is sent. Also please remember that any time you sign a "consent to treat" you become the "guarantor" and you are taking full responsibility for the bill. hope this helps a bit.

For a neighbor I wouldn't get involved anymore than telling the social worker at the hospital her circumstance. They may be able to put her into nursing care. If she is bleeding, she may have cervix/uterian cancer. Let them contact a family member. You can be supportive.

You could see if she has contact information for a relative. It would be good for a relative to help her to apply for medicaid or other helpful programs. She definitely sounds like she needs a full care facility that will accept her. Probably a state run one. If she has no one, sometimes the police dept. has a person that helps with this job. Also you could as a last resort. You need some kind of social service to guide you. I'd research what is in your area, maybe starting with the Health Dept. or Senior Services if that exists.

Sorry, but it sounds like Mom is a Hospice case. Please have a long talk with the attending physician. Talk to the Social Worker about how to get her into a Hospice center or Nursing Home.
