About this Care Recipient

My mother is a 50 year old woman. Was previously independent and working 10 hours a day 5 days a week. In July 2014 we had found out her kidney transplant was failing and then proceeding to do at home dialysis. Since December thur March my mother has been in and out of the hospital. She has had pneumonia a pe and dvts in her legs. Since being in the hospital and unable to get out of bed she lost strength in about all her extremities at this point. My mother was in acute rehab with four weeks and received three hours of therapy a day to help strength her. We were able to get her around with the walker but not that good. My mother can shower and use the toilet alone with supervision. At time she can be a little bit forgetful. She does have a cat. My mother at this time is having trouble getting in and out of the house we are looking into renting a ramp to help with that.
