As part of a rather long dying process, my mother has recently slipped into a dementia- like state. She is extremely weak and can't stand or walk without risking a fall. We don't want her to spend what's left of her life in pain from a broken hip or something similar, but she doesn't understand that she can't just get up and walk. My dad is her caregiver, and all it takes is a moment of inattention and she's up trying to do something. She fell yesterday and bruised her hip badly but did not break it. She is beyond being capable of understanding the consequences of her actions and my dad does not yet want to put her into an assisted care facility. Anyone know of a way to handle this so that she can stay in the house with my dad while not risking a dangerous fall?
