My Mother has a hard time walking, and recently started at home infusions. She recently (about a month ago) beat Cancer, so she is still weak.
If we ask to help her, she says she doesn't need help, and when we try to just help without asking she refuses. She has fallen a few times in the home, and in public. I am trying to find a middle ground here. The risk of falling is still high, but if she keeps refusing help, and getting agitated when we do help, how are we supposed to help? I don't want her to become dependent, so a part of me does like that she wants to do things on her own, but it worries me so much that the next fall could be a bad one.
Any help or advice on handling this would be appreciated.
