My mom has alzheimers and has been on a steady decline.... She still gets around though and i take her out and take her shopping etc.
Lately (last few days) she does this weird thing where her body tilts backwards when she walks and i'm worried she'll fall. Its like when you have a child by the hand and are trying to drag them along and their body goes backwards to resist.... thats how she walks sometimes. She has fallen a couple times in the past (one time she missed the chair and she fell a couple days ago but not sure how).
So i've been trying to follow her around the house and my dad has been trying to keep an eye on her too but i'm so worried she'll fall in an instant when no one is watching her. I don't have help yet (thats another issue on which i want to ask for advice...... how to get a home health careworker and what the costs are as i can't afford too much :()
If anyone has any thoughts on how to help with her balance..... i'd appreciate it
Thanks in advance to all.
