Mother and Dad Updates – Southern Hospitality

It’s been a short time since I did a household replace on mother and pop and there was some new developments within the final week, so I wished to allow you to all know the way they’re doing. Mother and pop have been at Dogwood Forest assisted residing for 8 months now and it’s actually gone so nicely.

The climate has been so good and once we go to, we regularly go on the patio or porches and sit. It’s a great way to catch up and get exterior. That is mother’s balcony off her condo.

Dad continues to be in reminiscence care and can keep there. His dementia is fairly steady for the time being, however he wants all the additional care they offer him in reminiscence care and it has let mother have the ability to handle herself and never have to fret about him too. That’s been a blessing for her!

Mother has made a number of pals and so they play video games, specifically Rumikub within the recreation room on her ground. Making pals has been so good for her and I do know she is a blessing to them, as a result of they inform me that.

Dad has a pleasant patio space exterior reminiscence care and we go on the market with him too and he’ll make his manner exterior on good days too.

Just lately, Bobbie and Lynn Davis stopped by to see mother and pop. Lynn (the husband) is a unbelievable singer and so they raised their household in my dad’s church a few years in the past, so it’s at all times good to see them. Lynn introduced his music and sat within the foyer and sang gospel music and it is best to have seen the gang that gathered. He’s going to return again and sing once more and I do know it blessed the residents. Mother and pop loved it a lot too.

That they had a mom/daughter dinner lately and I joined mother for that. It was a pleasant time too and really considerate of the power to do this stuff for the residents.

We frequently find yourself on the balcony to go to. Conversations with dad are exhausting since he lives within the second. He talks some concerning the previous, however most of our conversations are concerning the climate, meals and simply regular small issues. He appears to be very content material for probably the most half and has stopped speaking about dwelling and his vehicles/truck, which is nice. We’re glad he’s not fixated on these issues anymore. He simply lives within the everyday and people 3 meals a day are crucial issues in his life for the time being. And that’s okay!

Sadly, after having a beautiful 8 months in assisted residing, mother took a fall final week and broke her shoulder. Mother was serving to one other woman in a wheelchair maintain open the elevator door so she might get out and her walker was behind her. When she rotated to get it, she fell down and landed on her left shoulder. She doesn’t know precisely what made her fall, she simply went down. At her age, that is so frequent and will be hazardous for certain.

We’ve been to pressing care after which to an orthopedic facility and her xrays indicated that it’s a fracture break and can simply need to heal up. He stated she ought to heal up fairly nicely in 6 to eight weeks after which will get bodily remedy to assist along with her arm mobility. We might recognize your prayers for a speedy restoration for her. It’s going to be exhausting for her, she’s staying in her room for now and we have now additional ranges of look after her for the following few months. We’re eager for a great restoration for her.

That’s what’s going on and I knew you all would wish to know. Issues have gone so nicely for each of them after which this mishap occurred. However we’re grateful they’re in a great place and nicely taken care of. Thanks for all of your concern for my dad and mom.
