My mother went into hip surgery the active, cheerful woman she has always been. However, during the procedure she was deprived oxygen and her brain suffered injury as a tragic result. Now, in addition to restoring function to her hip, she is receiving therapy to relearn basic skills, improve speech, memory and cognition. She has just come home and needs round the clock supervision as she often forgets that she can't walk yet! She is an amazing woman, with a positive attitude, strong faith and agreeable nature. She will continue to make progress, but she currently needs help bathing, dressing, doing her hair and makeup, eating, transferring from bed-chair-toilet, and all the other things that come with limited mobility. Our caregiver will be willing to accompany mom to her Day Rehab appointments, for which transportation is provided.
