Is there a negative side? Will the person become dependent on being pushed and stop trying to walk? OT has discharged due to cognitive decline and lack of perceived will (Medicare rules) shows no progress in 4 wks. I feel 90 1/2 year old female can regain strength and walk again with walker. However she is not eating much now and the dining room is a ways to go? Or do we keep serving her in room? what about the socialization AL is all about? Safety is paramount and so is her confidence in not falling. .
