I have not been posting much over the past months because my grandmother, age 92, fell and broke her hip shortly after Thanksgiving. She is doing much better but is still not back to her old self. She was living on her own and is back at home now with some daily visits from a nurse. We are now working on locating a new home for her. She is reluctant to move and lives in a small town that doesn't have very good nursing home or assisted living options - making things rather difficult. She is a wonderful woman that we love very much but also worry about living by herself. We are working through various options and hopefully all will work out for the best.
In the meantime, I wanted to link to this recent post at Firedoglake concerning Medicare and Walter Reed but also mentioning Medicare's nursing home compare website - a very help site if you need to find a nursing home.
