My 84 yr old father is living with me for the second time in 15 months due to fall in Sep 2019, and most recently last month that resulted in staples to his head.
My dad has mobility issues due to a stroke. He has no use of his left hand and drags his foot. A cane helps him walk, but he uses it incorrectly by placing it in front of him instead of to the side not to mention off the ground.When I correct him he says he's using it properly. He only has sight in one eye due to a childhood accident.
I have stressed to him as well as other family members and doctors that it isn't safe for him to get up unassisted especially at night. His last fall was because he got up in the wee hours of the morning to use the bathroom. Mind you he wears depends at night. When asked why he got up he said he couldn't hold it any longer. Even after the staples to his head he continues to get up at night. I am at my wits end. I let him know if he falls again he'll have to go to whatever facility meets his needs
I love my father, but the stress of the falls, his disregard of how it affects others, and his safety has me STRESSED.. Any advice is welcomed.
