    her dementia.  My wife did not give her enough anti-dementia medication.

    When you are older, breaking bones is regrettably easy.  My M-i-l broke her hip because in her dementia she decided to climb to the second floor of the house.

    Of course, I don't know your situation.  Regrettably also, people break their hips because they do things that they should not be doing, and cannot do.  

    Sometimes accidents happen DESPITE medical care.  With all due respect to your mom.  

    My m-i-l is now at home again, but we medicate more quickly and more aggressively.  Her dementia is controllable with aripiprozole.
