Mum has had a nasty fall over night, she had got up to check that the lights were out in the corridor (she just can’t seem to stay put!) and fell gashing her head open, the paramedics came and gave her 5 stitches. He said she was lucky. Mum wasn’t phased by it at all, she said it didn’t hurt, I’m really wondering about pain perception and
PSP. My question is whether anyone has used any form of head protection and if you have had success with it? I’ve seen online head protection for falls which looks a bit like a boxer’s head gear! Mum is averaging about a fall a week and I’m so worried, but she is impulsive and finds it hard to remember to wait for help.
Any ideas for thoughts on the head gear would be great, thank you.
