    Mother broke hip after fall

    She is 90 years old. She said that her leg gave out.

    Is it possible that her hip breaking actually caused the fall and was not from hitting the floor?

    Will she need a hospital bed during her recovery?

    I am getting older myself. Is walking the best way to strengthen the hip to prevent a hip fracture?

    Typically the hip breaks and then they fall. She probably won't need the bed once she gets home. won't they send her to rehab first?

    Hi. They suggest going to a facility but there is the in home option.

    Has anyone had experience with having pt at home?

    Strongly recommend rehab! Makes a ton of difference...
