She has a history of falling. I have been my mothers caregiver for over 15 years. She has alcohol related dementia, and a history of falls. She recently had a bad fall, requiring stitches in her head, and a cast for her broken wrist. The moment my back is turned, mom often tries to walk on her own, although the doctors state that she needs someone nearby. How can I get it through to her that she is taking a huge risk every time she does it? I am an emotional wreck!
