    Hypertonia
    Chronic Knee, Ankle, Shoulder, Wrist Pain
    2 L5 S1 Discectomies

    Any advice for someone who will be helping take care of an elderly woman with diabetes and declining health?

    I have never been a care giver of any sort. And to be honest I don't know that Ill be any good at it. Ive never seen my self as the caregiving type.
    But my mother in laws health is declining. She's in her 70s, out of shape, diabetic and she is in the midst of having appointments made to test things like memory. She did the clock test so far and that didnt go well. Last night she wasnt feeling well so we decided to bring her to our place so we could keep an eye on her. But she started feeling worst so the ambulance took her to the hospital. They havent told us much. But as far as we know shes doing ok. (High sugar, fever, chest pain, nausea) We think she was having an panic attack and also has an infection. Shes been getting UTIs lately. And she also doesnt do well taking xare of her diabetic needs. Shes also been having trouble with basic needs also so we feel she would do best with us until a room opens up for her. Any help or care givers advice? Also any advice on getting her into a nice home would be great.
