What should I be prepared for at a family care meeting with the staff & doctor at nursing home?
We are planing the first family meeting at mothers nursing home this week. It will include myself, mother, NH social worker, nurse and staff doctor. The docor and myself have determined hat mother can no longer live in her home and has progressed to far to really be a good canidate for assisted living. I need to know what to expect and pros/cons of these meeting. I have been thur some bad experiences with social workers/case managers at hospitals. But this time I want to be ready and prepared to make decisions. The real possibility of guardainship is one area that I will have to address soon, since I am an only child and we have property and finances that must be dealt with.soon. I Plan to meet with the social worker tomorrow since I have not met her and kinda see what her take on this is. Other advise would be greatly appriecated.
