Mum fell out of bed on Monday night at her nursing home and fractured her hip. We are still waiting for surgery but hopefully it will happen tomorrow - she is now first on the list. She has actually been in good form and is looking surprisingly well and I think the bed rest and IV fluids/pain meds have helped her. However I feel a bit like it’s the calm before the storm. The hospital have said the 4 weeks after surgery can be quite high risk. I don’t think she is going to want to get up and walk around after the operation and she can be quite stubborn if she doesn’t want to do something. I suspect we will end up in rehab and she will have to move from her care home to a nursing home so trying to prepare myself for the days ahead. I know falls are common with Alzheimer’s but wondered what other people’s experience has been.
