transfer into bed difficulty
margaretsdaughter posted:
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-
