Hey Everyone! l was just wondering if you could asnwer a few questions consisting in my grandfather's recovery.
My grandfather(71) drived on a daily basis prior to his accident,he now walks and already adjusting on to the ''have a normal life like he used to'' now,but several members of my family doubt on his ability to drive now and l understand,he may have some coordination problems.But what about testing him? l was wondering if anyone went through this or any family member or friend,what is your opinion aswell?
Aswell,my family members think he shouldn't go out walking on his own.Prior to his rupture he used to go and have walks for hours and obviously he wants to do that now,but my grandma won't let him! He didn't care one day and escaped and everything apparently went well ''as he says'' and l actually don't doubt that! . My family's fear is of him tripping in the middle of the street and not being able to stand up. When you think of that you obviously come to the conclusion that it is true,but my grandfather is a very smart person and doesn't consider himself a 20 year old that can cross the street unautiosly while cars are passing through (he may think he's on his 50's hehe) and l believe he can totally be safe when out by himself.
What do you guys think? Did you went through this or something similar? Any suggestions?
And finally :
He's physical therapy has already concluded, he now walks and can do everything on his own,but he sometimes says he feels a little unbalanced,I have suggested doing yoga to improve his balance and many other things, what do you guys think? and let's say he can still improve a little more on the walking thing,before his accident he walked on a very fast pace and now he obviously doesn't walk that fast,a little speedy pace but not like before, Do you guys think he can achieve more by walking daily and doing physical exercises?
Thanks in advance and l hope you have a great day!
