I have been taking care of my 89 year old mother for about 4 1/2 years and she recently reached the point where she can no longer stand. She was in and out of the hospital, mostly in in the month of March with congestive heart failure and dehydration. She then got pneumonia while she was in the hospital. She then spent about 6 weeks in a nursing home for rehabilitation. That was a mistake. When the nursing home released my mother she was home with me for 5 days and I had to take her back to the hospital with pneumonia again. This time she got it from the nursing home. With all this time she's had off her feet she's gotten to the point where she can barely stand. The male physical therapists at the hospital have difficulty getting her to stand. There are many more issues than what I've mentioned here and I just need to talk about it. I'm interested in what any of you have to say about it.
