I suffer too with hypothyroidism low B12 I take the shots fybromyalgia muscle cramps, broke my hips without falling. One hip is pin and plated the other is a total hip. I use awalker to get around. Recently my sister who looks after me She has three decompressed vertebrae. Her legs are numb. I live in an assisted living but do most things on my own there are older workers here and they think you can do it yourself. If I need help I can ring my light. But they don't like you to ring it at all.
My daughter worked in an assisted living facility and after a year she couldn't take it anymore. The residents loved her but she was appalled at the way other RA's treated them. They pay $5000 monthly but if they can't or don't want to eat in the dining room they are charged $5 for an aid to walk it to their room.
