My 95 year old mil took a fall three days ago and bruised her hand and knees. Doctor checked her over and said to give her paracetamol. Since then she is unable to bear weight on her legs nor lift herself out of bed or out of chair. She has been doing so since being admitted 7 years ago in a Very Sheltered housing complex. Careers say we need to contact OT to arrange a lifting apparatus. Meantime she will be kept in bed where careers are able to attend to her needs. They are not allowed to lift her out of bed. The family lifted her into bed last evening.
Where should I go for advice?
