My Mom as AF and started falling backward in 2010 and was taken into hospital begining of January that year with a bad chest infection, but her falling backwards continued she also went into heart failure in the september but still continued to fall backward. she did have to have her lungs drained and the her last fall resulted in her fracturing her hip. Was not diognised untill the begining of 2011. they could not operate due to the condition her heart is in. That year year in May she moved in and came to live with us. As I was living at Moms and my husband sleeping on the floor at the weekend thankfully my family were old enough to look after themselves. She is no experiencing difficlty with swallowing and keeps forgetting things and keeps getting angry and snnoyed the GP really does not want to now. What help and support is out there.
Hope some one can help.
