That is what also happened to my grandmother and she was only 85 yrs old in 1987 but a person can only have so many strokes and soon they are just trapped in their bodies ..
But it sounds like every one is having or had the same kind of problems and when I was young I just never figured I would live so long having so much fun and even jumping out of aircraft just for the pure enjoyment or work on average I should have not gotten so old now I am looking to be like all the others in the hospital I have known .
God bless ya all for taking care of your family members .
Gander, my mom is 80 years old, she'll be 81 in July. She is refusing to talk to family & friends, well, she'll talk to family when we go see her, but she won't answer most phone calls or texts & she doesn't answer them. That is a huge change for her. I'm going out tomorrow ( Sunday) to see her at the rehab center. My brother & 1 of our nieces went to see here today. I am hoping she will be able to regain at least a part of her independance.
Is the VA talking about having you go to stay? My parents had a plan in place for what to do when one of their health failed, but I don't know if they will really follow it now. They had talked about selling their house and moving into a retirement/assisted living facility.
You're in my thoughts and prayers.
karenerwin, penny1960 prayers and hugs still for both of you. so sorry you are getting crap from the insurance company.I remember my Dad having to deal with all the red tape when my Grandmother was put in Assisted Living, and the loops he went through. Dad found her Diabetes Diary was starting to be off and she was forgetting everyday habits. She agreed to go thankfully and lived there for 10 yrs with a wonderful care team. I pray God guides you and gives you strength during this. Gander I pray you feel better as well, I hope the VA is doing all they can.
Thanks! I appreciate it. it's hard watching your parents get old & their health begin to fail.
