Chris Part Five – Chris returns home, but it was not just a simple reunion: http://tbivoices.com/blog/uncategorized/chriss-return-home/
Chris and her mother talk about the 10-month transition from a nursing home to her family home after recovering from a coma. Concerns for Chris focus on difficulties such as managing stairs and friends whose names are hard to remember. Chris’s mom discusses the behavioral challenges related to weekend visits-having to set limits with a physically strong adult who refuses to return to the nursing home after the visit ends. From her mom’s perspective, the two key ingredients to making this transition successful were involving the entire family in the process, as well as having an understanding employer.
