Mom, who is 84, has been residing in an assisted living home for the last four months. Recently, she suffered a fall, which resulted in a fractured pelvis. Presently, she has entered a rehab facility to regain her strength and mobility so that she can return to ALF. Her balance is very poor, and this seems to be resulting in more frequent falls, although this is the first time there has been a serious injury. The problem is, she is very resistant to physical therapy, and not at all interested in getting stronger. As her family, we have addressed this with her, as have the PT personnel, and neither of us have been able to make any headway. As the primary caregiver, at what point do I just give up having this conversation with Mom, and what are the options? She does have a mild form of dementia, but I don't think she truly needs skilled nursing care, yet with this attitude, she certainly doesn't appear to be a candidate for returning to assisted living. I am at a loss, and my family, who is, by the way, very supportive, will be looking for answers to how to address the problem with Mom. Has anyone else faced a similar situation, and how did you handle it?
