It may be that your rhodies are not getting adequate light and the growth is thin and too weak to remain upright. While they may have been planted in the proper sunlight exposure 10 years ago, nearby trees or shrubs may have grown large enough to shade them excessively. There's not much you can do to restore the proper growing conditions other than to prune or thin out nearby trees and shrubs - or move your rhodies to a brighter location in your landscape.
