neighbor friend
was snowboarding with her 12 yr old yesterday
my neighbor friend broke both her arms
was in hospital yesterday , had surgery, guess one arm broke really bad
she is coming home any minute
have calls into neighbors for dinner
BUT
she will not be able to do anything!
i spoke to her on phone, and asked if hospital suggested home health care aid
she said they did not because her husband said he will care for her (BS), he is thinking he might go to work tomorrow!

  • i did ask her if she was going to get home health aid
    i would think it would be covered no problem
    if she was 60 and broke a hip= insurance covers
    so 45 and two broken arms should be covered too

  • she is still not home
    she did call and ask me to unlock her front door
    when she is home
    i will talk to her again
    she must call hospital and be honest that her husband is not going to care for her
    betting hospital would not release her if they knew husband was not being honest when he said he would care for her

    i can help, but i have a little one and can not be there every moment when husband at work

  • Oh my gosh this one of my nightmares that or broken legs. This poor lady. You are really nice to help her out. Maybe she could call 211 and find out about reduced pricing for home care?
