It looks like the additional (free to me) aides will be coming for only 3 weeks. I will try to make the best use of them. Training them takes my time. There is no way around that.
It is not only an aide. It is also OT,PT,nurse, social worker. Really I have to initially be here with them. So one whole week of the 3, I am still tied up.... Oh well!
The rule is as long as he needs a nurse. What he needs is not really nursing. He has minor skin problems right now so we can justify this to Medicare. I am pursuing a mental health aspect. He is unable to initiate anything by himself. He just sits and watches TV. There is so much daily care that he needs, I find it hard to also take care of providing him with other activities, too.
I just love the SYSTEM! NOT! Chris
