A Caregiver’s Story…. Sooner than Later

Mom’s social worker stopped by. From what he was saying it sounds like mom will be uncertified for hospice sooner than later.   (Can you hear the bit of panic in my voice?)

Fortunately we have lots options for the medical equipment. But the only options for nursing help are for us to hire someone to come to the house, and that ain’t cheap.   The home health care division is saying that mom’s doctor can request home health care for certain health conditions. However, because mom’s case isn’t acute and her care needs are long-term, they say that the request will be denied.

As my cousin would say, Le sigh.
