My mom has severe dementia and has caregivers with her 24/7. She will not lay down to sleep. Physically she is declining, but she is still able to get up off the couch or her big chair in her bedroom by herself. The other night while she and her aide were sleeping, my mom woke up, jumped up out of her chair quickly and fell on her right side. Her aide woke up too late to catch her. We took her to Insta-Care, and luckily was broken, but she is bruised. My real question is: Is there a benign restraining device that we can put on her chair (not on my mom) to keep her from getting up on her own and falling, in the future? We can't be the only ones with this issue. It's hard to keep a good woman down and my mom was always an exerciser, so she loves to get up and attempt to walk, even though her legs no longer want to cooperate for any length of time. We've tried telling her not to get up without help, but with her dementia, she has no understanding. In her mind, she thinks she still is strong. She does not need or use a walker or wheelchair, but walks with the help of an aide or family member.
