This is a bit of a follow-up from this post: https://www.agingcare.com/questions/overcoming-guilt-from-not-ending-life-support-when-had-the-opportunity-454653.htm
Mom has been in a long-term acute rehab hospital for over a month now. She hasn't made too much progress. She was back at the hospital ICU last week with influenza, pneumonia and sepsis. She has recovered well.
I'm thinking the rehab hospital will dismiss her in the next few weeks. She is getting close to 90 days hospitalization total for Medicare purposes. They sound like they'll send her to a SNF next. So, basically a nursing home.
We have a family meeting next week to get everyone updated and on the same page. What questions should I be asking? Mom's worst fear was going and laying in a nursing home. And that is a reality now. Though I realize nursing homes aren't necessarily that bad.
She is immobile and still doing therapy. But I don't see her ever living independently again. Best case probably ALF. But these are some questions I have, although no one has a crystal ball obviously.
