My folks are currently in an independent/ALF hybrid (apartment style). Things have been fine through this lockdown until my father's dementia took a turn. He qualified for visits from a hospice nurse through Medicare, but now the hospice nurse is saying he needs a night nurse (due to disorientation, confusion and falls in the night). My mom is physically disabled and can only press call button for assistance but that can take at least 20 minutes for a response. They cannot afford a night nurse as recommended and because of the lockdown, moving to memory care is on hold.
Any thoughts/ideas on how to manage this?
Many thanks...this community has saved my sanity many times.
