Yes, by all means he needs up to a month in a good rehab facility. What is his situation? Living in his own home? Alone? Caregiver? My mom had hip replacement at age 84. She has done very well since but would have never recovered without 4 weeks in a good rehab.

Is he in rehab? Did he go to rehab after the first fall? He's not going to get better at home unless you have a physical therapist coming in several times a week and he is diligent about doing exercises. I personally don't think it's possible to recover properly after hip surgery unless you do several weeks of inpatient rehab.
