HI - My mother has difficulty standing easily; and has a care giver with her from 10:30 - 3:30 M-F; but evenings, and weekends, she is pretty much on her own. She gets up every two hours, throughout the night. She can do this today; but had difficulty two nights ago, and I am concerned about the decline, and needing help through the night. Her long term care insurance covers the assistance during the day, but it will be way over the top of her daily $$ limit if she needs it 24/7. I don't believe Assisted Living provides 24/7 with someone right there helping her to the rest room; helping her to stand, through the night. I don't know what someone does in this situation. If she can't stand at some point, too tired at night, she would still need to do that if she were in a mobility chair. She still needs to stand to move to a commode; even a bedside commode.
When she was in a nursing facility healing from a hip replacement, there with little to no support to her through out the night; she remained in bed, and used her diaper, and was humiliated. Repeatedly. She then was eventually able to get up on her own, into a wheel chair herself into the bathroom, and try to make it, and didn't, many a time -- and the staff left her there, until they were able to get to her. It was not their fault, but they had low staffing. There is no one-on-one of course through the night.
What is going to be available to her, if she cannot stand on her own at some point? It is not far away.
