My grandma is getting discharged tomorrow from rehab. The social worker told me Saturday discharge is considered unsafe, but I guess she is doing it anyways. My grandma's Medicare benefits ran out. They are setting up home care and a nurse is supposed to stop by on Sunday. Then they are going to send an occupational and physical therapist on a set schedule.
I'm worried about all these people entering the home and potentially bringing in corona virus. My grandma is 94 and my mom is 72. My mom has had low white blood cell counts, so I do not want to put her at risk. Do you think it is worth it to have them come into the home? Rehab hasn't been very productive that is why they discharged her. They say she has plateaued. I'm guessing the nurse will just take vital signs.
