I hope that there is someone out there who can help me with my problem. My husband keeps falling; first out of bed so I got the Dr. to order a bed rail. Now he scoots to the foot of the bed and gets out. This morning he went to sit on the corner of the bed and missed. He doesn't think of safety first. That wasn't that bad as he was trying to sit back down when I asked him to. But, tonight, he asked to sit outside for awhile so my son-inlaw sat with im while I dyed my hair. He went inside for a minute and Joe decided to follow and fell from a standing position. I am at the point of restraints for him for his own safety. I feel mean even thinking about restraints from behind. But I have to keep him from falling. I have even told him that this was what it would have to be if he didn't ask for help. Thank God he goes to see his primary care Dr. next week. His coumadin level is way too high and they told me not to let him fall, but he won;t listen. I turn my back and he up again. His balance is terriable. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
