Thank you so much for your concern Smurfy. My brother is there every day and I go in around 5:15 to feed mother and put her on the commode and put her to bed. If I"m not there my daughter goes or my aunts go, mother 's two sisters. So, we really do watch out for her. Even
the people who work at the nursing home have commented about
it. A lot of the people there have no family left which is very sad. There are several volunteers that come in which is nice. And basically it is a nice nursing home. They have a shortage of aides but
it is hard work and the pay is not much. Also, sometimes
they have to double over if the aide reliving them can't make it in. So they have a big turnover in aides. But there are nurses on staff and others there who look after them and the people who work there are very caring.
I did find out that the nursing home pays a company and they send a nurse in to do the residents bloodwork.
I had thought it was a nurse from the nursing home who did mother's blood test. I still don't know why she only had one size needle and no finer needles or butterfly
needles. Mother has alway had collapsible veins and
needs a thin needle to keep from having to be stuck so many times.
Thank you for your concern. It warms my heart
