Mom was falling and about 5 months ago she went into an Assistant Living. Then she fell there and was diagnosed with blood clots in her legs and is in a Rehab/nursing facility. It is either the hits on the head(she had MRI's and does not have a concussion-Thank God) or Parkinson's disease --her memory is really bad now. I went to a meeting today and they said that Mom can not go back into Assistant Living safely, which I already knew that. The nursing home part of this does not have a spot for her in the Alzheimer's unit and that is where she needs to be so that they can watch her more closely. They told me she was really a "fall risk" and asked if I knew anything that would help her...which I figured they would know that better than I would. I suggested alarms for the bed/wheel chair and they said they do not have those.
Does anyone know anything else I can do to help Mom from falling again?
I'm looking into other nursing facilities that has space for her in the Alzheimer's unit but until then, I really need advice. Thanks!
