She would probably benefit from a therapy evaluation by a home health agency. The therapist will evaluate her home for safety and make suggestions for any improvements. The therapist will also teach her measures that she can take to continue to care for herself, safely. In the meantime, make sure that her bathroom is safe. Does she have grab bars, especially for getting in and out of her tub? Does she have non slip material on the tub surface? There are benches that can be purchased for the tub, so she can easily slide in and out. Some of these changes may help her feel more secure when bathing.
