Dad broke his hip in late May and has been in a skilled rehab facility (aka Nursing Home) since May 29. Since that time he has not made any progress with physical therapy and his mental decline is staggering. When he went in his mind was amazingly good ... he had very little, if any, cognitive impairments. Well, now, he can't hold his eyes open, he doesn't always recognize people, he has difficulty feeding himself and on and on. My brother and I live far away but we try to visit him every other week. I found out on this last visit that he was over-medicated (and we had told them to stop the narcotics weeks ago). The medical director didn't want to stop the narcotics but finally agreed to it. There is just so much wrong with this facility. They falsified reports saying they called us when meds were changed or when he fell. It is impossible to call him on the phone, there is always an excuse on why they can't bring the phone to him, etc. The good news is, when this happened, we were blessed with two wonderful caregivers who are taking care of my mother, around the clock. These ladies are truly heaven scent. Prior to their arrival my mother was is such bad shape that she had been approved to go into hospice because of her dementia. However now she is completed off of home health visits because her physical and mental health have improved so much. She is eating, is in a good mood, jokes with people, reads, etc. One of the ladies takes her out to eat and on picnics. Both ladies want to take care of Dad, too. I want to make sure he has everything that he needs at home, though. How can we coordinate the move? I need advice on transportation, getting meds transferred and can we just go and rescue him or does he have to be released by a physician? It is overwhelming. But it is so sad to see a man who still had his wits about him being treated so poorly and being allowed to just spiral downward.
