I took the new health aide to visit my husband's rehab.
They were wonderful teaching her his exercises. He has spent almost 2 months getting stronger. We don't want to lose what he has gained.I came home tired. It is emotional with lots of people to deal with.
The PT was in his room with her assistant using a complicated lift machine to show our new aide. That is alot of people to interact! Then someone came in to make up his bed at the same time! Then the phone guy came and replaced the broken phone wire--after my husband's big wheelchair cut it in half. ! Then the floor person came in! Then the other therapist came in to show us how to do his arm exercises! I could not believe how much activity was happening in his small room and the small hallway! After all that I wanted to leave and my husband kept thinking of things he needed. Finally I said I was exhausted and he should ask the aide when she brought his lunch. I was dripping wet from the exertions and humidity.
