If you pray, please send some prayers for my grandma and my family. My grandma is 92, her 93rd birthday is in 6 days. She lives with my parents and I, and has been in long term hospice for about a year after having a stroke. She was doing well until two weeks ago when she was in respite care for five days... when she came home the change was unbelievable. She could no longer walk and was extremely weak. The nurses/aides did not get her out of bed, did not change her clothes, and did not shower her. Her nurses/aides from hospice were not allowed in the facility “due to COVID”. The facility administration says that’s not true, that they were told they could come.
We are devastated. That nursing home is the reason my grandmother has entered the final stage of her dementia, and will probably not make it to New Years. I don’t even think she’ll make it to Christmas. She has been bedridden for the past three days, is rarely awake, and barely speaks, and when she does I can’t really understand her.
At this point we’re just keeping her comfortable and waiting for the inevitable. My parents and I have gotten sick from being so worn down and stressed, and unfortunately my mother had to be tested for COVID today as her doctors suspects she has it, which means both my father and I, not to mention my grandma, have been exposed. We won’t know for 48 hours if she’s positive or not.
I’m just really sad, overwhelmed, stressed, and feeling like crap right now. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. #Prayersneeded #CheckInWithMe #Hospice #Dementia
