    Risk for going to a nursing home.. and I need a nursing diagnosis.
    I'm doing my assessment on my patient. It is broken up into sections and in the discharge planning section I am stuck on what to put. She is 62 and has had 2 strokes and her family is starting to struggle to take care of her. Her husband said that he fears a nursing home is in her near future. So I thought I could use that. She has a in home nursing team that comes in her home and she really can't complete any of her ADL's without extensive assistance. Any thoughts??
