- She was feeling neglected being in the last room of the old hall. The CNAs would start at the other end and work their way down, so that Mother was always the last one they got to when it was dinner time, activity time, or whatever. Or at least she thought she was. I'm not sure.
- Also, the CNAs on her new hall have been there longer and have more experience, and since the hall isn't so long they have fewer residents to care for per CNA.
- She's much closer to the nurses' desk and the front door.
- She's also much closer to an outside door that we can use when we go visit.
- When my sciatica is acting up and my bunioned foot decides to throb, it isn't fun walking that LOOOONNNNNGGG hall. This will be much better. I'm also having surgery on my foot in a few weeks and will have a boot up to my knee. This will be much easier!
- Also, my sister, who has breathing problems was rarely able to walk all the way down to Mother's other room. The CNAs would bring Mother up front to meet her. She'll be able to manage this walk, though.
She was tired partly because they started physical therapy with her again since she was in the hospital. She reentered the nursing home as a skilled patient which means medicare will pay for her to have pt for 100 days. She really needs it. She just sits in her reclining wheel chair or lays in her bed all day. This will be good for her. She wasn't too thrilled.
Supper is almost finished. We're taking it over to the ILs next door tonight. I don't do much cooking so this was a pleasant change for me.
Sewing will get done tomorrow, I hope.
