I’m taking mom to the doctor tomorrow to get a referral/orders for a SNF. She is now out of the hospital 31 days, but as I’ve mentioned before she has made no progress with 1 or 2 time a week outpatient PT, has not gained weight or stamina since being home and needs more than what she thought recovery at home could get her.
Any ideas what to expect? She has a secondary insurance that will pick up beyond the 21 day Medicare pay period but we’re hopeful she won’t need more than that and after our talk yesterday she is committed to working hard and getting back home, because even her doctor early on said she should recover well.
I realize that it’s more than the 30 days from discharge by a few days but mom dragged her heels until we all met as a family yesterday and my siblings told her, “Hotflash needs help.”
Input or advice would definitely be appreciated from this fantastic group.
