I am sorry to hear this, smilyn. What lies ahead of you depends on how advanced your mother's dementia is. If she is in earlier stages she may be able to return home if someone is there to watch her. I recently had a friend with Alz who broke a femur, then returned home, and resumed normal activities in a few month's time. She did fine with a cane.

If your mother's dementia is more advanced, it may be an opportunity to seek a higher level of care for her in a nursing facility.

You probably know the answer of what would be best, since you know your mother and what resources are available to care for her. The main question would be where she would be safe and get good care. Good luck in finding the right thing for her.

Or are you referring to surgery to repair the fracture, then rehab in an appropriate rehab facility, and home care thereafter?

More information would be very helpful. Going forward, are you looking to change her living circumstances, i.e., change from living at home to a long term care facility?

If you could give us more information, we can help. What do you mean when you say you want her safe and no complications? Are you talking about the facility she is in? And by going forward, do you mean what to expect after the initial treatment.... we will help if we can.
