Thank you so much for the responses about my awful luck. I think I have the truck issue undercontrol. Now here is my next issue.
When I went to see my dad yesterday the social worker pounced on me. She told me dad was not improving, had all sorts of issues, there was no way that he could come home and mom and I care for him. She acted like I had not been in the room at all or at therapy with him and that I had no idea what assistance he needed. She also acted like it was horrible that my mother is not there everyday and that I work. She also said that dad is refusing his meds and feedings.
I tried to explain to her that my mother is not there every day because she does not drive, and I do not have the gas money to run all the way home after work every day before and after work. There has not been one day since he went to rehab that I have not been there. I have been to therapy with him at least 3 ot 4 times. I also explained that I am the main source of income in our household so I need to work.
After talking with her I went in to see dad. He was wonderful. He had been to therapy both times that day. Was feeling good. He did not do his feeding that morning but waited until after he got out of therapy. He gets his feeding at 9:00 and they start therapy at 9:45. He said waiting until later helped. I also noticed on the board that the therapist had changed his information from 2 people helping to 1 person assist. I called the nurse that night and she told me he was doing better every day.
So my question is what do I do about the conflicting stories I am getting from the social worker, nurse and therapist. I feel like the social worker has a problem with me. She has not done one thing to help us get ready except fax some papers for medicaid.
Any suggestions at this point will help.
