Mom is 78 years old. My dad died a few months ago. They were married for 59 years. She is coping much better than I thought she would. Physically, she is healthy. She has balance issues (inner ear-not fixable) and mild dementia. She falls frequently but rarely hurts herself. She wants to remain as independent as possible and to stay in the same home she has lived in for the past 48 years. We have in home health care, Lifeline and the family checks on her daily. This week she fell and broke a toe. Not a huge deal, but do we wait until she really hurts herself before doing anything or should we act now?
