Why does my elder with a fall risk get up even when she's not hungry or needing to go to the bathroom?
My elder gets up out of her bedroom from time to time. She doesn't have any dementia, but she ha a high fall risk. Even with her scooter or walker she worries me so much that she might fall and be disabled.
The last time she fell was a month ago, in her bathroom. She had a huge gash on her forehead as a result.
Why does she always do that from time to time, even when she is not hungry or not going to the bedroom? I'm going nuts over this and I don't know what to do. Help!
