My mom fell and broke her hip. She was living alone, but now needs more help. What do we do?
Talk to your mom and find out what her ideal scene is, and measure that against how to get her the best care and what can be afforded financially. If it is affordable, you can hire non-medical caregivers to help her in the home. Make sure you carefully background check potential workers in your home, or find a reliable agency that does that for you. If appropriate, the doctor can prescribe physical therapy in the home from a local home health agency. Another option is for her to move to an Assisted Living Facility, where she can get the help she needs.
