In limbo

Mom is in a nursing home here in the UP. She fell on June 20th and is trying to rehab in the hopes of returning home. Our dilema is that she is weak and now cannot walk (as per instructions from her doctor.) We have found it increasingly difficult to manage her physically. We are looking into what kind of support we can get (or pay for) in order to continue to care for her at home. Right now we are on private pay due to her not qualifying for medicare help in the initial hospital visit and subsequent skilled nursing stay. So...I have been researching and trying to explore options. Meanwhile Bob and I have had a much needed rest/respite and Chris has had the major time commitment of visiting and supporting mom in her nursing home stay.
