My Mom was going to send his insurance cards and information with him. She sent nothing. My Dad is 86 years old and caregiving for the elderly is completely new to me. I don't work, but care for my grand babies although I am cutting back on that and told my kids they need to find other child care. My Dad is supposed to be getting physical therapy like he was where he used to live, but here, he told them he doesn't want PT. He is basically bed ridden. I feel so overwhelmed with everything and so unorganized. He's been here since Saturday night. The nursing home did have him sign a POA so I can handle his health. I want to get copies of his health records from this nursing home as well as his past hospital stays and past nursing home. Is that possible? Do I need all of that? I just want to make sure he is receiving the best care possible. My emotions are all over the place which totally is unlike me. I can cry at the drop of a hat. I'm not menopausal, lol. My husband and kids are very supportive and have also been helping to oversee his care. My Mom moves here December 15th, but we will have to somehow get her moved. I guess I just want my Dad to get better, but I doubt he will. He's had issues for years and this last episode was started when he broke his back last June. I guess I just don't know exactly what to do. I'm trying my best but feel overwhelmed. I keep apologizing to the nurses telling them I'm sorry if I'm bugging you, but I've never done this before. I've been trained in bereavement counseling as well as caregiving, but I don't know how to do it myself I guess. Any advice you have would be much appreciated!
