My mother needs 100% care, where should we go for care?
My mother had a stroke 4.5 years ago and is unable to take care of herself. She is bed and wheelchair bound, cannot feed herself, needs adult diapers, etc. Currently, she and my father are in an independent living facility with full-time private caregivers for her from 8 am - 9 pm. My father is independent. He is concerned about what will happen to her when he dies, specifically, where will she go?
Based on the research I have done it looks like a nursing home is the only option unless we move her home and have caregivers continue to provide the care they are providing now. Am I missing something? Is there another option? If a nursing home is the only option, is there a particular kind of home or type of services I should be looking for? My parents live in West LA.
