Candid Posted July 25, 2012 Share Posted July 25, 2012 (edited) My dad had to call an ambulance and have my mom taken to the hospital last night. She is 81 and has had an increased number of falls in the last 2 -3 week. She is up to multiple times in a day. He is 85 and can't always get her up. They are here in town. Any way I suspect Grandma will be in the hospital for a couple of days, and I need to help dad prepare his house to bring her home. The good news on that front is they bought a new place several years ago that has wide doorways, etc. They've already been told (yesterday at her regular doctor's) that she'll probably need a wheelchair. But I don't know exactly what kind of list of things we'll need to think about and I'm hoping some of you have been through a similar experience and could give me questions to ask, things to consider, stuff we'll need. Dad's had a by-pass and is not strong so he'll need help in terms of moving her around. I'm off to the hospital for now, but I'll be checking in later. Thanks in advance for your help.
