Living Alone with LVADMon, 04/22/2013 - 2:15AM
I am 43 yr old.....I have had care taker (family member) stay with me since implant 10 months ago.....my strength, confidence in device, and new dressing procedure of twice a week versus daily have let me make decision to live alone while I wait for transplant. I will have dressing done by family member twice a week but will otherwise be independent...been a long road to this point...has anyone done this recently (gone from caretaker at home to living independent).....I have signed up for 5star (by greatcall.com) which gives me added comfort, security.
Any thoughts is appreciated.
Thanks and in health,
