My mom just turned 87 and is living in an assisted living facility. She has dementia. Her short term memory is failing..She can do all her ADL's with supervision. Her heart rate slows down to the point she passes out. THis has been going on for years. She has had several cardio consults and some say yes to a pacer and some say no..I am worried if she doesn't get one she will fall and fx a hip. We all know what that means in the elderly. Any advice?
