My mother in law whom my hubby and I care for had an ACAT (aged care assessment - Australia) and we received the results today. She qualified for either high level nursing home care and/or a level 3 & 4 at home care package. She currently lives alone in her own home with a lot of support from us but as we both work nearly full time and have young children we can only manage to visit her once a day in the evening for medication a meal. She absolutely refuses home help. Ideally carers in her home would be workable as they could help with orientating her to time, breakfast, lunch, showering and activities. They would also prompt her to drink regularly and turn on her air conditioner as with summer coming it will be really dangerous leaving her without cooling. My hubby really wants her to stay in her own home as he promised his dad before he passed that he would take care of her and she is very happy there. I guess my question is how do we get her to accept carers in her home?
