Elderly petson lives alone in Spain, age 79. Is currently undergoing tests due to minor blackouts, review of meds or something underlying yet to be confirmed. Past few months had a handful of occasions where has been standing and then finds himself on the floor, no warning or signs. Fortunately has not hurt himself further and escaped with minor bruises. The situation is, he can sit himself up, but due to having bad knees can't then physically get up off the floor and needs help to stand. Once up is absolutely fine. Neighbours have been brilliant but can't keep relying on them as they have busy lives and their own health problems. What he needs is someone to call to help get him up when these situations occur. Is there any care places or services that offer this type of service? Obviously happy to pay, just need someone reliable that he can call to help get him up on these odd occasions. Other than this he is very independent. Red cross offer a service to call and a key box but is based on nominating a person, friend or family, to go help which he doesn't have. Family are in UK and friends are older and more physically challenged than him. Any suggestions welcome, thank you.
