Hi anniegirl.welcome. I work with people who have alzheimers and generally after they fall they can sometimes decline. However on saying that I have seem some that have fallen and it has not affected greatly. It depends on the persons stage of the alzheimers and also whether they have other health issues as well. A little more of a suggestion if I may is that a routine in place helps alot. re meals at the same time each day, showering or washing same time, getting up and going to bed at the same time. It generally works well with people who have alzheimers. If they are out of routine the confusion can increase. Hope this has helped you here anytime if you need me. Please let me know how things are going for you your family and your Dad Take care Piglit

Thanks for replying Piglit. Well I have worked in a few places taking care of Alzheimer patients. Before the fall my father was in the mild to moderate stage. But in my experience ever one that I knew when they had a fall they pretty much declined faster. Well honestly my father flew by being struck by a truck. He broke his hip. It is after this traumatic incident that my father’s Alzheimer’s has progressed so much. I guess a fall was putting it mildly. But we are pretty sadden by this. My father is doing as good as can be. The best thing is that my father has all his family supporting him and loving him. Thanks again for your feed back.

So sorry that this has happened to your Father. Please take care and let me know how things are going. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers It is good that you and your father have such a great support it makes such a difference as you know Piglit
