    Streff

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone has used or uses or can offer any information regarding helmets for safety when supporting a person with dementia who is frequently falling?? I have been asked by a residential care home for product information on head protective wear for this purpose it is not clear what strategies or other avenues they have tried before reaching this decision, if any.
    Any info would be welcome!

    Hello Streff
    Sorry I cannot help with info on info/sourcing such head protection
    though I am sure their is something that may be suitable, maybe if you could speak to an occupational therapist

    What I came here to say is, that if the person could remove it they probably will, so you would need to take that into consideration

    If only I could have Hindsight beforehand, oh what a difference it would make .

    Odd words,mis-spelling and punctuation are most likely due to my clever phone, it seems to have its own ideas about what I am trying to say, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol
