Mom is living in a memory care facility close by. She is very weak and cannot walk alone at all. She was alone for a few minutes (whole different issue) and had time to get up from her wheel chair and fell backwards hitting her head on the floor. After visiting with the director I ordered her a lap buddy cushion. Mom loves it and I found a way to attach it on one side so it "swivels" out when needed but is secure while she is seated and will force the staff to use it for her. Falls come naturally no matter how much supervision there is, but I'm hoping this will help us all feel more secure! Have any of you had experience with the Lap Buddy type cushion and did it help?
