Ok so here's the situation. I don't know if this is the right place but I'm at the end of my rope here.
My mother has always had a very specific opinion about nursing homes, and it was never a good one. I can see why: my grandparents died in one, in fact we sent my grandmother to one for what was supposed to be a week and she died there in 3 days because we're pretty sure they purposely upped her morphine to lethal levels, and my father died there at a relatively young age because of heart troubles.
Now to this disaster of a week. Mom went to the hospital with gangrene on her leg (long story). They did a couple surgeries, and they were talking about letting her come home for the weekend. Nice! Except.
Mom has no primary care physician.
They won't let her go home without a primary care physician.
They are wanting to send her to a nursing home instead. I absolutely CANNOT let that happen, I'm afraid my mom would give up and I'd lose her too. Please help me. Everyone's saying there is no other option. There has to be please.
