Senior keeps on touching furniture, cars, open doors etc out of habit as much as need. You frequently see him reach for an object after he has stood up or completed a step. Keeps on saying "he's trying" and/or leave him alone/shut up. Doctors, therapists and nurses have told him he shouldn't be using furniture etc for balance and that he was capable of strength training of which he completed a few sessions over a one year period. He also over uses his cane at times almost pushing himself with it when he walks. It is hard at times to get consistency out of him when it comes to physical therapy exercising or strength training. Same for nutrition including taking recommended vitamins. Long story short he recently "touched" one of those 2 foot long metal pans at a catered event in which he could've flipped a pan of hot food over. He says he just 'touched' it and gets hyper defensive when we point things like that out. He's touched alot of cars in parking lots lately saying he doesn't care if he trips an alarm. This while using a cane. How can I get this 'toucher' to stop using/touching things he simply does not have to? Is there a confidence problem or is he hiding an injury?
