I want to give deepest thanks for what I have learned from all of you in so short a time.
I am studying progress Mobility for a possible hospital bed for my dad.
Many thanks on the various advice about so many topics.
My dad finally accepted the idea of having help from a home caregiver we obtained through a social services agency. This non profit group has provided help to a neighbor of my dad's for many years. She is helping with meal prep and light cleaning and also taking dad to appointments and doing his food shopping.
Now we are on to making him more comfortable in his home.
He has a great chair that helps him with elevating his legs. He has been sleeping in it as well but I think that a hospital bed will be better for him. The bed can be right next to his bathroom where the chair is down the hall.
Got to go for now but again many thanks to all of you.
