Does anyone work with a double leg amputee? I recently starting working for a gentleman who has a double amputee above both knees. My question is this: He cannot do much for himself by way of transferring nor moving around in his bed. He is a large man, and refuses to use a transfer board, or a hoyer lift, stating that it is too difficult. His wife stated that they tried using one in the hospital recently, but "it didn't work". I'm not sure what that means. Anyways, I am 51 years old, and it is becoming extremely difficult for me to scoot him around in the bed and also transfer him to the bedside commode and his electric chair. I had found that having him sit on a chucks pad and pulling him (scooching one side at a time) until he is in his chair (or bedside commode), was helping me tremendously; however, now he doesn't want to do that because he states it's too difficult for him since he has to use his arms to help scooch. He does not have strength in his arms to help. How can I transfer this large man, who is too weak to help himself much?? I'm too old to be moving this man around without much help and with his refusal to use any kind of hoyer or aide to help me!
