Wheelchair for double amputee dementia patient

After returning from the hospital for an above-knee operation, my Mother returned to her Nursing facility. After being there for one day or possibly the same, she fell out of her wheelchair and had a nasty fall. An Aide was with her but walked 2 feet way to check on another Patient. During that time my Mother pushed herself forward in an attempt o get out of the chair (which she was doing before she had the operation removing the lower portion of the last leg she had left that was still whole). Now because the facility is afraid of her falling again, they are keeping her in the bed most of time until they can find a chair she can sit up in that will keep her from falling if she decides to put herself forward. If anyone has information on these type chairs for dementia patients of whom is my is one of. Because of this sometimes she gets busy and fidigidy. Any information wil be appreciated.

Appreciate yur Assistance
