At the moment, I wish I had a lot of money… to afford the best healthcare there is for dad to make him as comfortable as possible, to give him the best quality of life and to make recovery for him as smooth and as fast as possible.
Dad was in ICU and in hospital for 3 weeks now. That equates to lots of $$$$$$$$! When he is discharged he will need to go back to the hospital frequently for physiotherapy. This is no easy task, not when you have to be transported from bed to wheelchair to car to wheelchair to gym then from gym to wheelchair to car to wheelchair to bed again.
If I could I would like to buy a good hospital bed with remote and the best wheelchair. I would like to have a special van for wheelchair users so dad can get out to the physio gym to do the necessary exercises to aid and speed recovery. I would like to afford mobile nurses to come to the house to make sure dad gets the best care, nourishment, hygiene.
I don’t know how much the hospital charges will eventually be. The deposit was RM10k. Dad’s new medication costs over RM1k a month. 24 hour mobile nursing would cost RM15k a month. There is a special sponsored transport service for wheelchair users which costs RM3 per person per trip. So lets say someone accompanies dad to the hospital for phsio. That would mean RM3 x 2 persons = RM6 x 2 ways = RM12 for a to and fro visit to hospital using the special van. There are many more expenses. Thats only the transport charges mind you.
Yes, at this moment. I wish I had a lot a lot of money.
