My mom was discharged from rehab back in Jan,and has had OT and PT at home after having a stroke that left her left side weak.She has no mobility in her left arm,and can barely walk with the assistance of a hemi walker and an aide. She was discharged from VNA back in March.Due to the New England weather and her mobility issues she didn't start outpatient rehab until late April.It only lasted 3 sessions due to her developing a pressure sore. As of now VNA is back in the home treating the wound ,as well as OT and PT for now. I discussed with her physical therapist about putting her back in outpatient rehab to get intense five day therapy. She agreed it would help. Now other than my mom falling, and being taken to the hospital,which she has fallen twice this month.No injuries,so she wasn't taken to the hospital.How do I get Medicare to pay for inpatient care for OT and PT. I know there has to be a skilled need. Does the wound which has gotten worse make her eligible? We don't want to nor can afford to private pay. What are her options? Where do we start? No one seems to know.Not her doctor at least.
