Casus: Hip Fracture
A few weeks ago Gaston fell in his own home. It took him several minutes to find a phone and call for help. Once in the hospital he was diagnosed with a hip fracture and will need surgery. After the surgery Gaston has developed some fear of falling again. This fear affects Gaston’s willingness to do his exercises.
