Several times in the past few of years, I have mentioned that I am the primary caregiver for my almost 93 year old mother. Last week, she took a fall that has left her in terrible pain and needing a great deal more assistance.
In addition to getting help from others, I am trying to implement some of the suggestions that I have read about. While resources are available, many of us do not find them in time to be of real assistance to us.
One decision I have made is that it is time to set priorities and to follow through on them. I will be going to the medical equipment store today to look at hospital beds. On Thursday, we will get an order from the doctor for home health care assistance. Hopefully, on Friday I will be able to get input about sitters and the like.
In the meantime, I will need to put this blog on hiatus. If I can get some of my co-workers to do a post, there will be something here. If I get inspired and have some found time, I will do a post. Otherwise, I will leave you until things quiet down on the home front.
Thanks for reading. Hope to talk to you again soon.
