My lovely mother who was diagnosed 3 years ago with CBD had a very nasty fall just before Christmas. This resulted in emergency care and referral to facial injuries specialist unit where she had deep stitches to her face. I have been in contact with the neuro-rehab team and a physio who has suggested walking aids. My mother is very brave and adamant that she will not use a walking aid and my father is also determined that she doesn't need a walking aid.
I am really worried that she will fall again but I also don't won't to upset them with my deep concerns about the risks of her falling again. She cannot put her arms out to protect her fall.
How do I broach this again with out causing upset? I want to safe guard my Mother who I love very much...
I would really appreciate any advice you might have to help us?...thank you
