I moved and left my family in another state to care for her. I have taken over her medications, getting her to doctors, helping her clean up, cook, basically everything she did for me when I was born. She has been in the hospital many times and has come close to death several times, I have been through it all. It is the hardest thing I've ever done but at the same time the most rewarding as I would have never known the Mom I know now had we not had this time together. One month ago she was sent to a nursing home for two weeks for Rehab for her knee that has been a problem with her for over 15 years, we've done all we can but there isn't anything to be done to get her better. Now it has been one month and they will not let her come home. She is able to walk with her walker the same as she did before her last hospital stay. She is still of sound mind, still full of life at 78. First they told her she couldn't go home until she knew every medication she takes, what it looks like and when to take it. I have been doing that job for over a year, she takes over 30 pills a day, I over see that, she doesn't...not that she can't, I just took it over. She is crying that she will never be able to go home with that as her test. Today they told her she can't leave now because of her medical problem, which are many, but none are new since she was admitted there. They are telling us if we take her out against their orders she would have to pay for her full month stay and all the medications she has taken since there. That she can not afford. She is now starting to give up. We want our Mother home. What are our options. We feel she is well enough to come home, they won't even come do a home check, which has been done after every hospital stay when home health comes to the house. We are very frustrated and angry, we took her out of the first nursing home as they did not give her her medication on time, we thought this one was much better, now we just feel like we are being lied to, every week we've had a meeting, every week they throw something else at us. Any suggestions we can do?
