To try and make a long story short mom (85) was a spunky women for her age still driving, shopping etc.etc. About a month ago she was involved in an auto accident where someone hit her broadside and ending up with a broken right wrist which required surgery. Fast forward to this past week she has been living with us since our home is all on one floor but when I came home she said she didn't feel well and couldn't even stand on her own without assistance. We immediately called the ambulance to take her to the ER and after running several tests, x-rays etc.etc. she was diagnosed with a severe UTI and possibly gout in both knees. She is currently in the hospital but not sure for how long and now I need to know how to proceed to get her the care she needs which I feel would be a skilled nursing facility or at least assisted living facility since there is no one home in our hoursehold for at least 10 hours during the day. ANy help or guidance would be sincerely appreciated as I am the only caregiver and at a total loss since less than a month ago she was driving herself ot the hairdresser!!
