So how many times has she really fallen? What if she hits her head next time? Do you really think there won't be a next time? She could be on the floor "bleeding out" from a relatively minor head wound because of her stubbornness.

Cost is not an issue. Do you how many hundreds of highly qualified medical personal that would gladly volunteer their time to sit outside her residence in some kind of unobtrusive mobile medical unit?

Maybe her doctor can get through to her.

If she checks out, President Trump is easily going to get Amy Coney Barrett confirmed by the Senate and there will be blood in the streets. Something no sane person wants.
I'm not denying anything you say, except that, without her consent, there's nothing you can do. If she wants to live alone, and not have someone checking on her on an hourly basis, that's her right. If her doctor or family can convince her otherwise, great. If they can't, there really is nothing to be done.
