Care Plan Meeting Today
When I went in this morning, the activities director motioned me over. Mom was in the dining room where they were having music. Some guy comes in often and sings alot of the old songs, really good, too. She said that she was taking mom to the music and she said, she wasn't well. (she says this every day) So the AD told her they were already there, and just sit for a few minutes and if she wanted to leave she would take her back to the room. She said she laughed and even clapped some. So that was good. While she was occupied, I went in to the scheduled care plan meeting. There really wasn't much to discuss since I am there every day and talk to someone when a problem comes up. Mom's weight is stable at 120, so that's good. She really likes the food there.
She was upset the night before about the fall. When I took her to the bathroom before lunch, she tried to tell me about it, but most of it didn't make sense. She did say, "I can't stand it anymore". I noticed a brush burn and a little black bump by her right eye. After lunch I also noticed a red swollen area on her right hand, which I reported. As I was leaving one of the therapist said she heard mom hadn't walked in awhile (a month), so she is ordering a PT screen. She is getting weaker, so hopefully they will pick her up for a little therapy.
I think it's the weather, but this was a really depressing day. I had very little energy. I did get to pick my grandkids up from school though and they were here for a couple of hours, so this was a great pick-me-up.
