Foot Drop

I am currently taking care of my 26 year old sister who was in a severe car accident. She has a broken L clavicle; broken pelvis in three places R and L; broken L femur; broken L tibia/fibula; L ankle and L foot. She had surgery to correct the femur and tib/fib (rods were placed). The pelvis was not operated on. We were told by the ortho that no standing for 8 more weeks but we need to work on moving! She has no insurance and no PT, I'm her PT. We were given a very few instructions by the PT in the hospital but I am concerned that there should be more that I need to do for her. We saw the doctor today and he gave a couple of suggestions on pt moves. Would you be able to help us? Thank you.
