My dad and step-mother live alone in their house like an hour away from me and my family. Well, my step-mother is like 15 years older than my dad so she is facing all sorts of problems before he is and he is left to take care of her. She keeps falling because she tries to stand up when no one is around her and she isn't stable enough! Today my dad called to tell me that at 3 am, his water turned off and he told her to stay put while he went outside to see what the problem was. He came inside and she was standing up wobbling around and she fell over before he could get to her. She fell so hard it busted a blood vessel and got blood all over and he had to rush her to the ER! She is fine, but she falls at least once a month. She has broken hips, arms and legs. It's getting a little over the top and I'm not sure what to do. My dad won't put her in a nursing home because he is embarrassed that she is so much older than him.She told him that she doesn't remember standing up, but I'm not sure if I believe that. Do you think she is deliberately trying to fall to kill herself or something? They are coming to my house for my birthday tomorrow night and I feel like having a talk with her about it. She needs to quit standing when she knows she is going to fall. I just want to yell at her! What should I do?
