Should my dad go to a nursing home for rehab?
my dad has been in the hospital since Sunday and the Dr. says he can probably be discharged by the weekend. He will get a p.t. evaluation but these people don't know him so how they give him a fair assessment? They don't know what he can and can not do. Anyone who has been in bed for almost a week is going to be weak. My dad is not even aware of what the Dr. wants him to do. He is having a lot more memory issues lately but some of it might be due to being so sick. He really wants to come home to be with my mom who has severe dementia. They do have a live in caregiver to help him at home. Does anyone know about Medicare ? If he comes home and after a few days really does need to go to rehab, will Medicare pay for it ? Or does he have to go straight to rehab in order for it to be covered? I want to do the right thing but I am afraid that either way things could go wrong. If he goes and hates it, he will blame me. Been there, done that, last year with him. And if he goes home it could be an accident waiting to happen. I am so confused right now. I am emotionally exhausted from all of this. Please, I need some advice!!!!!
