Other Areas of Fall Prevention

I want you to know how much we have enjoyed our caregiver and what a godsend she has been -- very calming, speaks softly, and doesn't let Mom get the best of her. I had to take Mom to the doctor on Monday and the caregiver went with us. I couldn't have made it without her. Mom is harder to get along with these days which I know is common as health problems worsen but it was really beneficial to have a caregiver's "voice of reason". Mom really responded to her and that took the pressure off of me. Having our caregiver is such a relief to me.
