FROM STEVE 08-12-09
I was with Mama on Tuesday evening from 5:30 until 7. She was in the dining room with Jeanette. She ate some of her meal and drank coffee and some tea. She was alert and communicated reasonably well. I understood that she had 30 minutes of P.T and would have 30 minutes 5 days a week. I suggested that we find out if we could also participate and learn to perform P.T. to increase her recovery time. She also had a bath. The staff will not force a patient to engage in therapy., I encouraged Mama to cooperate. We have eyes and ears and mouths and should coordinate the messages to family and staff.
