Any special clothes or bed sheets? Hi, I am about to bring my bedridden father back home from Hospital. He's 71 years old. The Doctors said he is at risk of developing "Bed Sores". We have bought him a special mattress and we plan to have him on a special diet plan.He has very frail and thin skin. I have researched and found out that there are special clothing and bedding/ Any advice? Have you tried any ? Do they work?

Once a patient gets home from the hospital, they will send a Home Healthcare nurse/case worker to your house to talk with you, coordinate visits by Home Healthcare nurses. Talk to the case worker and tell her of your concerns and she will show you or have someone show you how to turn every 2hrs., etc. as well as set up caregivers to come and wash your dad a couple times a week. This is also time to talk to the caseworker for future care options.
