    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Mom has alzheimers in the advanced stage. She can shuffle to the bed and sit ok, but not lay down. When she is in the sitting position, feet on the floor, I have to hold her shoulders and then lift her legs on to the bed. This is the only activity I havent found to do a better way. Any suggestions?

    Margaretsdaughter, I'm sorry you haven't received an answer to you question. I'm afraid I don't know of a good way for getting your mother into bed, other than what you're doing. Perhaps you could find a caregivers' site, and see if there are any tips there.

    Best wishes-
    Carol
