As soon as he arrived at the Sub Acute rehabilitation Facility he did not like the place. Everyday I went there and talked him down from his anxiety attacks.
It got to the point where he was so emotionally upset that it just broke my heart to leave him and come home.
Each day I wondered if I could care for him at home and have the Dr put an order in for him go into a out-patient day rehab instead of in-patient one like he is now
When I would bring this up with the staff there they would talk me out of it saying I could not handle taking care of him 24-7.That he was better off there etc etc . Until this last week.His anxiety levels had sky rocketed changing his behavior like a roller coaster and their solution was to increase his drugs to calm him so much so that he was always sleeping....I said screw this.... how is he suppose to improve his walking, strength and cognitive disabilities if he is always sleeping and refusing to do them. Whats the point of him being in this sub acute rehab center if that is all that is happening?
Especially by refusing his rehab sessions now all the progress he made prior at the hospital for 5 weeks was starting change. Instead of going forward getting stronger it looks like he was going backwards getting weaker.
After 2 weeks I could not take seeing him like this any longer so I started making lots of calls and spoke to Insurance people, Social workers and Day Rehab people, and all of us agreed that bringing him home and starting out patient rehab for him was best, I then started finalizing the discharge and getting him home.
I knew it would not be easy because he still needs allot of help, but I figured if he was at home then his emotional health will improve because he would be where he is comfortable, then his motivation to get better and do his rehab will return and he will kick ass.
So on June 17th I picked him up from the sub acute facility and brought him home.
