I am really concerned for my mother-in-law. She fell again today.
We got a call from the special alarm service. She wears one of those button alarms around her neck (Thank God), and had to call for help to get up again. She had spent over an hour trying to get up and waited to call.
When she finally figured out that she could not do it by herself, she pushed the button. Thank God that this service does work.
She told us that she had on a pair of socks and that her foot slipped when she was in the kitchen. We found her in the living room. She evidently scooted on her rump to make sure the door was unlocked for someone to get in. Scary.
