Hi, My 86 yo mom was recently hospitalized for septic shock. She survived and went to a rehab where she has gotten bedsores, edema and remains incontinent (bladder and bowel) and has yet to get back on her feet. The rehab told me today that mom will be ready to come home on 12/23. I don't live in the same state as my mother. My husband does and he won't be home till the 26 at least and we cannot care for someone who is incontinent and barely able to move around. She lived with us in an apartment prior to getting sick, but we had come to the conclusion that she had too much alone time and wasn't caring for herself properly and were taking steps to make sure she got more attention. However, I am back in the state where I work and live most of the time and hubby is not going to take care of my mom full time as he works 10 hours a day. The nursing home said, ''that's fine, our business office will be in touch to quote a price for us to keep her through your husband's visit". She needs to go to assisted living we all agree, but I have no idea how to go about this move. She has Medicare and a supplement. What is my first step?
