A person had a stroke, was in hospital and then rehab, wanted to leave rehab, told them he had a good support system, uses walker to walk, not sure he can rise into walker or sit back down after using walker without assistance, but he can walk very slowly w/walker. Can feed himself. Had stroke that affected one side of body. Has fallen since being home, had to have help to get back up off of the floor. Cannot get in and out of bed alone. Could fall at any time. YET with all this - the person who is with him -- will be leaving him unattended at times... Periods of hours. He can get someone to come and help him if they are home -- they cannot lift him without help from others though.
In this situation, what is the right thing?
New at this. *Not related to person in need. Feel the need to help his main assisting person that he must have more assistance. I already told them that he must have someone there who can lift him.
did he leave rehab too soon?
does he need someone there who can lift him?
