Hi friends! Welcome back to “The Over 50 Corner”!
Sorry for the delay in posting this last week but, you will know real soon the reason why,
My 92 year old mom has been staying with M. and I while my sister has been out of town, which brings us to the reason why this posting is late!
Bright and early Sunday morning, we had to take her to the hospital emergency room due to strange symptoms that are not considered normal and…we are still here!
Not wanting to take your time, it turned out to be a bleeding ulcer!
It may sound harsh but, my siblings and I have been considering finding a place, that some would call a nursing home or assisted living or rehabilitation or whatever you choose. What we didn’t know, was the “qualifications” needed to be admitted, if covered by the insurance companies or the cost if not covered!
Well, let me tell you, it’s NOT cheap!
I know that some of you have had this experience of having a parent living in one of these establishments so, you probably know what I am talking about! So, what are we to do? Medicare and Medicaid are such confusing words! I guess this is the time to start learning what they can or can’t do as we just might need them some day in the future!
Note: In an attempt to have her admitted to a physical rehab establishment just went down the tubes as the hospital Physical therapist tested her and informed that no therapy was needed and that a doctor’s order would, most likely, would not be issued.
Our search now begins for a new “home” for mom.
So, here we are!
Thanks for taking the time in reading this posting! Remember, your comments and suggestions are always appreciated, especially now!
Until next time! See you again at “The Over 50 Corner”!
