The question sums it up, but I'm not sure how or when to have the conversation with the facility. Do I tell the care team it's not safe for her to go home, even if rehab gets her back on her feet? It isn't. If so, when do I tell them?
She's in the early stages of dementia. Forgetful and cranky, and I'm concerned about her ever getting into a nursing home again since she is straight up medicaid as this disease progresses. My friend, an NP is strongly encouraging me to have her stay there for her own safety and my sanity. Can they make her leave the facility? Do I admit that I want her to stay now, or when she finishes rehab? I'm in CA.
Thanks everyone... I'm a long time lurker and this forum is a Godsend.
