This afternoon Mother was catnapping but mostly napping. She did give me a faint smile in between one of her naps.
She did not eat any supper Saturday or Sunday nights and only 75% of her breakfast and lunch. How she is maintaining her weight is beyond me.
Advantage Hospice will began caring for her tomorrow during the day hours and if facility assistance is needed, it is still available. At least maybe now her teeth will be brushed daily and she will have lotion applied and her bed linens will be changed 3 days a week. She will have the opportunity to drink fluids other than at mealtime. She still will not have one on one care but her day aid will only have 2-3 or 4 more residents to care for.
She may or may not continue to get up for showers twice a week. The plan is that for now she will continue to do so.
My brother and I are in no way trained in the medical field, but we do know Mother needs more assistance than she is getting from the facility and in some ways it is no fault of the facility and others it is. We are just wanting what is best for Mother.
