Hi, just joined. My mother-in-law has recently been diagnosed with PSP. She is a widower and lives alone, we are awaiting social services assessment but for the last month my husband and brother-in-law have been with her more or less 24/7. My concern is that she is at risk of falling at all times but it is not sustainable for her sons to be there all the time, my husband has been off work but is starting a new job in a few weeks. Does anyone else have a relative with PSP who lives alone? Has anyone arranged live in carers? Physio have said she is high risk for falling but she is also very stubborn and doesn't follow instructions for her safety, she also wants to continue living in her own home. We live 40min away so not quite on the doorstep. Any advice or experience greatly welcomed!
