My mother has healed after 3 months of rehab from 3 broken bones. She wanted to go home and the facility was pushing her out. After several weeks at home she now finds are ankles and legs are extremely swollen, and private pay care is $24 an hour on Long Island. She needs help and as her only advocate, I cannot be there 24/7. I may add she has been extremely depressed and anxious most of her life, and while in the rehab facility, treated my husband and myself as her servants with no thanks for anything. He has worked hard with an eldercare attorney who said she will more than qualify for Medicaid, spending down her money by fixing up her apartment and improving on it, for which she told him "she didn't need any of this!" The whole thing is more than I can bear. She's on blood pressure meds without a diuretic and today I will take her to her doctor to see what can be done, short of going back into another facility. Any helpful answers you have will be welcomed.
