Lately my mom, who has dementia, is so terrified of falling. It is becoming a big problem because she freezes up and wont move. This morning I got her to the bathroom and she hung on to the sink and wouldnt let go..she only had two steps to get to the toilet and wouldnt move. I had a geribelt on her..had her and tried to reassure her all is well. Had to get her to move and then she screams. I feel so bad..but I have to get her sit down. Once she sits down she starts crying. Then when I told hwer to stand up..she kept saying she cant..which I know she can because she does it all the time.
