Mother will be 91 years old April 22, 2013. She has had two hospital stays due to falling, plus C-Diff, which was absolutely terrible for her. It was exhausting and embarrassing for her to say the least since she has always been a very proper lady. She has moderate-severe dementia, depending on the time of day. Mother is fortunate to have a loving family who dotes on her. Her therapists say that she works best with them around 10:00 a.m. Mother is always
cooperative, but she simply will not trust the therapists to do their job. I have tried to be supportive at times when the therapist is there, and she still is mortified to stand. What can the therapists and I do? They say that she is quite capable of standing, but the longer she delays with this, I know that it will be very difficult for her to ever walk again or use the walker. She is in a wheelchair now and even has difficulty navigating it.
