I feel so guilty today - mum has fallen twice this morning which is new first time was getting her out of bed and her skin is that thin just the pressure of me holding her hand tight to try and stop her falling has split the skin - I feel so guilty for causing her actual harm we get over this and clean up get dressed get mum down the stairs ( she still manages to do the stairs very slow with me in front of her on the way down and behind her on the way up ) and on the very last step she doesn't make it and falls backwards hitting her head again I tried to stop it but not quick or strong enough .
I didnt know what to do - no care package yet not sure what we really need. So who do you contact GP, dn or local hospice ? Ended up calling spar for the DN who got the nurse to call me she advised ambulance but mum refused so she advised to get GP to see mum , now waiting for home visit .
The good days are now few and far between .
