We stand on the sideline, ever hopeful, but cautiously so. We balance on that fine line between hope and realistic expectations. We are at a crossroad; if Mom is to regain the mobility needed to live at home, it will be in the next few weeks.
Medical options in a rural community are limited. The wide range of specialized restorative therapy available in a large community are not available here. But in other, very important ways, the scale tips in our favor.
We have direct access to all the staff, including the administration, if and when we desire to make that connection. All the employees at the facility are known directly or indirectly by the family. Most of the staff have shown a willingness to go the extra mile to insure Mom has the best possible outcome.
