My dad has been home from the hospital for 8 days after a triple bypass,silent heart attack and mild stroke. He has fallen twice since coming home but was not seriously hurt, and uses a walker whenever he feels he needs it. My sister is his primary caregiver as he recovers and lives there with him. She is afraid what the doctors will say when she tells them dad fell twice since being home. Can anyone please give me any advice on this, or maybe you have had a similar experiance and can tell me how things were handled etc. Any and all comments/advice are greatly appreciated.
