Post Can't find proper home for mother with LBD
My mother was diagnosed with LBD after a brain bleed. She's in an assisted living home now but lately has become very aggitated. She gets up on her own and is a fall risk. The facilities can't keep her because of the fall liability. It seems as though there's got to be somebody else out there experiencing the same frustrations we are trying to place her in the right environment?

Contact your local Alzheimer's Association chapter about dementia care facilities.

Keith - I hope by now you've found a good place for your mom. My dad has been a fall risk too, in fact he's probably fallen 8 times since moving into ALF, but they have ways of dealing with that. I'm surprised the place your mom is hasn't figured out how they can keep her and reduce the risk of falling.
