When I visit her she just slightly turns her head to the side when I call her name but she will not raise her chin away from her chest. I have been told that this is a contracture but I am just wondering if anyone on the forum has experienced this? The memory care facility thought that a neck brace would help but she won't wear it any more than a few minutes. My mom is still able to walk but she only weighs 101 pounds and she was previously around 200 pounds. Her hands and feet also swell from time to time, especially her left hand and the facility feels that this is a contracture forming as well.

Yes. My wife has been in private high quality memcare for several years. When I first started to visit her in these kinds of places I noticed a few clients slumped over in their wheelchairs, humpbacked, head turned to one side. I presumed they were advanced in their Alzheimer's process and hoped they were having pleasant dreams. Now my wife is one of those people. She's lost 20 of her 135 pounds. She can stand but only with support and only for a few minutes. She's not swallowing her food. Her eyes just stare, no longer focusing on anything. She ism unresponsive. Hospice has her in a hospital bed and a reclining wheelchair. And so on. I think she is close to death and thank God for that.

I am so sorry you are going through this situation.

You have every right to feel as you do.

如果我在妻子的情况下观看某人,我会觉得就像你一样。

祝你在生活中最困难的时间里的和平。

"due to a hospital stay" that sounds concerning, this is the reason she is on hospice? ... Perhaps I am totally wrong. Please accept my apology.
在这些地方发生事故和忽视。如果something happened in a setting like that, for which your mom was not admitted originally for.. for instance, a friend's mom went into hospital for an operation. She came home with a stage 4 bedsore. She didn't go in with a bedsore, but went home with a very bad one.. It took months for her to recover...
Does your mom have CHF?
Has she had recent falls that the facility didn't mention to you? when was the last time you saw her walk?
And she is on hospice.. hospice is to make her comfortable.. hospice is great. They give her more attention, and supplies.
我亲自见证了什么,没有必要的药物,将被删除。我的LO被取消了血压和胆固醇的药物,以及我真的不记得。当他们从临终关怀毕业时,他们可能会以他们的保险等回馈它们。
我不知道一切,但确实问过临终关怀医生,认真地,发生了什么事?你的妈妈出于某种原因进入医院。
请询问问题。很难听到答案,但这将是一个开始。
我瞧用来走路,然后轮椅,现在,y just don't move her. She has a hoyer lift, to move her... She hurts when they use it. It is very hard to see her in that condition...

感谢您的答复。我可能会有措辞“由于住院住院”错误。我的妈妈被送到医院,因为她正在下降(难以走路,咳嗽咳嗽是肺炎,在其他事情中减肥)。在她的住院期间,她继续下降,医院建议她被临终关怀。我的妈妈没有CHF,她被脱掉了大部分药物。当她的神经病学家发现她被安抚时,她建议她留在血压和焦虑的药物上。留在血压药物上的原因是希望避免卒中,因为有中风并不意味着你将通过它只是意味着你可能比以前更糟糕。这些是她目前处方的唯一药物。最后一次看到我的妈妈走路是11月30日,我去拜访她。记忆护理设施也会发送她的行走和跳舞的正常视频。

当她在膝盖上开发挛缩时,我妈妈仍在走路,我从来没有意识到她不能完全矫正她的腿,因为那么她的姿势是如此涌现。我理解的是挛缩的是,肌腱变缩,正常的运动范围变得不可能,你描述的是听起来不像那样的话,如果她的脖子被冻结到位,就不会成为可能的括号我也持怀疑态度,关于她手脚和脚下肿胀的原因。此时,我认为您需要决定是否要到达这一点,而不是在任何情况下,只有注册的PT应该诊断和工作的运动范围。

那么,妈妈床有限吗?她有身体问题吗?卒中之前?如果你不使用它,你可能会失去它。我曾经活跃过。轮椅现在绑定,头部靠在头部休息。她失去了她的颈部肌肉,所以现在她不能抬起头,没有肌肉或弱肌肉,不能自己移动它。:(

mAYDAY My mother is still walking quite a bit.
She is walking a little less than she was previously but way more than the average person would walk in a days time. She isn't bed bound and is currently on hospice due to a hospital stay in March 2020. The doctor's gave her 2 weeks to 2 months to live and it is 8 months later. When she returned to the facility she was placed on hospice and was given a wheelchair because she was having difficulty walking but that only lasted for about 2 weeks because she refused to stay in the wheelchair and got up and started walking again.
