When I visit her she just slightly turns her head to the side when I call her name but she will not raise her chin away from her chest. I have been told that this is a contracture but I am just wondering if anyone on the forum has experienced this? The memory care facility thought that a neck brace would help but she won't wear it any more than a few minutes. My mom is still able to walk but she only weighs 101 pounds and she was previously around 200 pounds. Her hands and feet also swell from time to time, especially her left hand and the facility feels that this is a contracture forming as well.
