Just to let you know where we are now. Getting on fine with the profiling bed, and we now have a hoist,complete with sling,which is much easier to manage than the" standing machine" as this can pick him up from the floor!!
Have had brilliant help from the occupational therapy team and they still phone up to see if we need any more help!
Thought Alan would scream and shout with the hoist but found out he likes it!!! I even give him a little swing on it and he smiles!!
Blood tests results still bad and i can see he is not well, his dementia is progressing quite fast,but all in all we are still managing, and hope to do so for as long as we can. Many thanks for you interest in us,
From, still quite tired, but happy olderMum
