We are worried and have spoken with them about our concerns. Mom has alzheimer’s and osteoporosis. She has broken her hip and her femur in the past. Staff said the in house doc visits once a month and has said her bones are good. We aren’t comfortable with that answer. What can be done to ensure her safety? We’ve asked that she is forced to use a wheelchair instead of her walker. They say they encourage the patient to walk as long as possible and we agree but we know if she’s allowed to continue like this it’s not going to end well. She wouldn’t know how to self operate a wheelchair. Siblings were required to sign forms acknowledging the home isn’t responsible for falls and injuries that occur.
Would appreciate any advice.
