Mom was released from the hospital 2 days ago after stuffing respiratory arrest due to Bronchitis, asthma and end stage COPD. She was discharged 3 days after stopping breathing. She did not want to be sent to rehab or come to stay at my home. She wants to stay in her own home by herself. We had a home health nurse come out to visit her for the first time yesterday. I couldn't be there but my brother said the only thing the nurse did was check her vital signs and leave some information about keeping safe. Mom is in denial about her health and insists she wants to remain in her own home. Who do we contact to set up an aid to come in every day to assist her. She has medicare and tricare insurance. I disagree with her decision to stay home but other than physically picking her up and bringing her to my house, there is little I can do other than checking on her frequently during the day and have my brother check on her in the evenings when I have to work.
Most agencies don't accept insurance and the cost is about $25/hour.
