Without warning, Mom’s medical situation takes a significant turn downward and she goes from being independent and on her own, to needing 24/7 care in a very short period of time. The adult children rally to find a short term and long term solution since they don’t know how this will play out in the coming weeks and months ahead. After the hospital and rehab at a local nursing home, Mom returns home. Initially the children take shifts to address Mom’s immediate care needs. When the children need to go back to work and Mom still cannot be on her own, an in-home caregiver is located and service begins immediately.
