My husband is about to be discharged after two months of hospitalization and rehab. He has a peg feeding tube, which requires occasional monitoring and changing once a day. He is on oxygen, which also requires monitoring. He needs help dressing, bathing, and toileting, and he needs to be encouraged to walk with his walker. He has mild dementia and enjoys conversation and can listen to books on tape or music or watch television. He will have visiting nurses and physical therapists (etc) in the short term to deal with the feeding tube and his medications (which are given through the feeding tube). I can accommodate a live-in (private bedroom and bathroom) or am happy to have several caregivers who come in shifts. His discharge date is not firm. I will need someone soon, possibly as soon as early as this coming Mon or Tues (Dec 3 or 4).
