My mother in law lives in independent senior housing apartments, but my wife and I stay over about one a week or more just top make sure she is taken care of. She takes a multitude of sleeping and anxiety medications as well as taking Norco frequently because her hips are both bone on bone, without cartilage.
The problem is she won't stay in bed!
She is clearly out of it and exhausted but can't seem to stay in bed which lasts to her falling.
I don't know how to approach the topic because during the day she is completely mentally sound, it's just physical issues.
Ideally I would move her into our home but she doesn't remember waking up every five minutes or falling and sleeping on the bathroom floor until one of her kids comes over.
Any advice would be so greatly appreciated!!
