Have youcalled customer service with her insurance? Ask if there is a case managementsystem to help with this transition of care. They can help you find resourcesin your area. Have you looked into geriatric care manager services? The socialworker with the nursing home may be able to offer you insight into services inyour area. It is extremely difficult to find round the clock assistance that isaffordable. Even with hospice, or Medicaid qualification there is not usuallyround the clock care. Some states have programs to help people stay in theirhomes. It is also important to have her medications looked over to minimizefall risk, and simplify her regimen. Best of luck and good health to you andyour mom.
