My mother released from rehab a week ago. Should never left rehab. Came home, got worse, went to hospital. They let her stay there until we make a decision. My mother has vascular dementia. Just found out about that. She was going to come home with hospice but because she had a good morning, hospice won't take her. They think she should go back to rehab or long term care. Mom got really bad in the month she was at rehab. I really want to take her home but case worker said she needs 24 hrs care. If she needs that much care why won't she be eligible for hospice? She seems to get worse in the afternoons. I know she doesn't want to go back to rehab. Physical therapy will do an evaluation on her tomorrow but she hasn't been out of bed for a week. I am afraid she will go downhill if she goes to a nursing home. What do you all think?
