I got a call after dinner last night from the nurse at mom's memory care place. She took a little fall in her room. One of the items we took with us to decorate her new room was a small latch hook rug (she made years ago). We just put it up next to her wall on the side of her recliner. Out of the way, but still visible (hoping to keep familiar stuff with her). Well, she must have moved it because the nurse said it was over by the door where she was after falling and must have tripped or slipped on it.
She said mom was fine, not hurt or anything and doing well, but they do have to call and let me know and also send a report to her doctor. I said I will be in on Friday morning, so I will take that little rug out with me. She said for now they put it in her hamper, so that is good.
The "good" thing is now that she is in memory care and has a fall, there is a nurse on staff to check her out. She took her blood pressure, etc. When/if she had fallen at her other place there is no one to do that and no one to check in on her after, like there is now, so I feel much better about that. I did just try calling my mom to check in on her, but she's not in her room (as usual, LOL). The other thing I like is they have me on an email list and that has been nice, so far for general info. They even just emailed out March's activity calendar, which her other place never did. I saved it to my desktop and now have it to look at for next month.
I decided to give doing MTurks surveys a try again to bring in a few extra dollars, since I am losing my side job for the most part. It's been 2 years since I did any. It took me a little bit to remember how it all works, but so far so good. I didn't start until Tuesday afternoon and made $12 Tuesday and $17 yesterday. Today, so far, I am up to $9, though it's taking me longer to find ones to do, $9 is good to me for it only being noon.
Tomorrow is a partial work day. We have to take the cat into the vet for his annual visit, stop and see my mom for a quick visit before her lunch and then swing by the feed store to pick up chicken feed and supplies and then head home and back to work for the rest of the afternoon.
I suppose now you need to try to figure out what she can move and how she can hurt herself...lol. It is not enough to set things up for safety. This is sort of like unplugging everything she can find!ReplyDelete
Did she stay down when she fell and for how long until they found her? I wonder if she will remember falling. It is good they have someone to take care of medical emergencies.
It sounds like she stayed down and I don't think it was very long as it wasn't too long after their dinner was over. I'm sure she won't remember at all. She really doesn't remember anything new anymore.Delete
I remember when you used to do mturks & you were good at it. Do you remember the name of the ebook you bought that gave tips/tricks to be more successful at it?ReplyDelete
I do not know what it is but I’m very interested. Do you have a link to share so i can give you credit when I join? Thanks.
Glad to hear your Mom wasn't hurt.
The ebook was called: Side Hustle From Home: How To Make Money Online With Amazon Mechanical Turk, by Michael Naab. I think it was like $3 at the time.Delete
Falls are common. I'm glad she's OK.ReplyDelete
Did you get lots of snow?
We hardly got any snow at all, not even on the pass.Delete
I think you're right to move that rug out. It's a shame as she made it, but it can't be helped can't it. I'm glad she wasn't hurt though!ReplyDelete
Maybe dd will want the little rug, I'll ask herDelete
I am glad it was just a minor fall. She really is in the right place, at the right time now.ReplyDelete
