Hello! I do not currently care for my in-laws. They live independently. However, my 83-year-old mother-in-law has severe scoliosis and she is quite physically deformed. She is bent over 90 degrees with one hip jutting out. She uses a simple cane. She is unable to use two hands for anything. She is unable to go up steps; she crawls on all fours. She is scary-close to a very bad fall. The issue is she denies there is anything wrong. She refuses mobility aids of any sort. She fiercely insists she can do anything. She refuses accompaniment to the doctor, thus no one knows her state of health or doctor's advice. Her husband and both of her sons are too passive to get involved or "make mom mad." Any suggestion is treated as aggression by her. Apart from this, she is sharp as a tack. I am hoping for some advice on how to convince her to accept a walker, a more stable cane, rails and hand grips, some housekeeping help or cooking help, things of that nature that would make more comfortable and reduce her risk? Must I wait for her to fall? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
