Her condition has deteriorated such that she can no longer sit up without pain. The staff at her nursing home are generally kind, but aren’t doing much to help. We're in need of some ideas or leads for how to improve her situation, taking into account that she is effectively bedridden and can’t speak English. [more inside]

Please help me think of ways to reduce the pain and tedium for my mom post surgery

My mom just had her third surgery to repair hip tendons and its expected that she will not be able to go anywhere without 2 crutches for 6-8 weeks. Besides limiting mobility, it also means that she won't be able to cook for some time--her lifelong passion and joie de vivre, besides plants. If she were nearby i would go spend time with her, but she's across the Atlantic (France, I'm in the US). I'm trying to think of ways to cheer her up, make life easier, ease the tedium. [more inside]
