For Dorothy Coelho, the road to recovery has been a long and difficult journey.
Since 2010, the 81-year-old Fall River resident has suffered 10 falls, some so serious that she landed in the hospital for a few days.
For the past three years, Coelho has occasionally experienced dizziness, which contributed to balance issues. She's fallen off her rocking chair and fractured a few ribs by falling in the bathroom tub.
