About who needs care: Needs 24/7 assistance. Meals, help daily with dressing, restroom & back, medicine, some laundry, occasional Dr visits. This is for my mom who had a broken arm & surgery & cant use
her right arm at all now. Stitches come out in 2 weeks & real therapy has to wait for 6 weeks. She broke her arm in rehab & was there for a broken leg. We would rather have care in the home rather than repeating the lack of care received in the rehab centers at present. We need almost full time companion because she us a fall risk so not a as me to walk on her own without being monitored.
About the care needs: Lady, non smoker, she is quiet & loves Christian music & fellowship. My dad is also in the home 90 years old & is very feeble He cannot take her back & forth to the restroom or give her the care she needs. He can help in some areas but very limited. He can at this point take care of himself slowly. I order groceries & have them delivered. They also get meals on wheels. 3 daughters, one is in The Oaks at Bethesda-stoke. One daughter in wVa, she us having surgery today. Im the other daughter & I live in Texas, my husband is supposed to have surgery on Monday, Feb 14th. I have been caring for her but cannot stay 24/7. There is not anyone else who can help with being with her daily
