My mother is in a ALF and on hospice. I also utilize a few hours of private care each day. But, for the 4th of July weekend, hospice is on holiday as well as the private care. I must rely on understaffed ALF. I used to love holidays. Now I dread every minute. They all say there is someone on call but something must happen before I make the call. An hallucination, a fall, or a messy undergarment are all possibilities. Every big holiday seems to be a setback for her. I pray that all will be well. How do you get through the holidays?
