 My mom has been in a skilled nursing facility since August 2nd..she went there because on July 3rd she fell and broke her left hip..and 4 days after leaving the rehab facility for that..she fell again and broke 4 ribs(this was on August 2nd). She has been getting progressively stronger. The therapist has gotten her to where she can use a quad cane for short distances and a walker with better mobility.

Hopefully, this time she will continue to get stronger at home..and no more falls. She still has recovery, the therapist told her that it is possible she will need a quad cane for the rest of her life.  As long as she still has some independence that is all we are hoping for.

She should probably be on some kind of bone strengthening meds too! Does she have osteoporosis?

 She does..right now in the nursing facility they are giving her shots daily of Forteo...and she will be on it after she is released.
