So sorry to hear that Peter has had several bad falls. Please tell your Mum it is absolutely not a failure to get help.

Have you contacted Social Services to see what help they can provide; carers, respite, day centre, etc? If you can get a care manager or an OT to come and visit they may be able to offer suggestions and access to various services too. Your Mum is also entitled to a Carer's Assessment from Social Services and I believe you can self-refer for those.

(On a side note it may be worth getting your Mum to go and see the Dr on her own account to see if there is anything they can do for her)
