I have been away from Agingcare for a while. Things were going fairly well here so I took a bit of a break. But, things have taken a 'turn' and my MIL may or may not be able to come home from Swing Bed - if she cannot gain enough strength. I have told my hubby that I cannot care for a 220 lb. person who cannot help herself. I hurt my shoulder the first of this year and basically have a 'broken wing' and my hubby had rotator cuff surgery and does not have full strength in his arm either.
I would like to know if anyone knows if a person can be placed into a nursing home in another state? If my MIL needs nursing home care - we would like to have her to back to her home state (she has been with us for 8 years) - and be nearer to her youngest son. (it is HIS turn) :0(
Thank you all.
