Mom (94) fell and broke hip. Surgery and some complications but managed to get from rehab to home in 3 weeks. She is continuing PT and OT at home. She is required to have some adult there 24/7 as she is unable to get out of the bed and onto the walker without some help.
She is progressing and the aim is she will be at least back to 90% of where she was before the fall.
No mental issues.
Her current home heath care provider is a great gal who usually works M-F about 10 to 4pm. She has been staying overnight until my sister could get there to spend nights and the weekends. Sis can't continue that as she has her family too. Mom needs nighttime coverage. Any way Medicare will chip in? If so, how does one go about applying? Mom currently pays $30 hr. for her assistant so that cost can really go up if it is 24/7! She lives in fancy suburbs of DC.
