My mom (83, ALZ) weighs about 215 and cannot stand and pivot very well. They have her as a two-person assist for transfers at the SNF. I have trouble transferring her from the wheelchair to my car (Equinox). Currently, I'm using a gait belt to lift and pivot her onto the seat, and she's often dead weight.
Fortunately, my lease is up soon and I'm looking for recommendations for a car/SUV that's got a wide door opening, or is otherwise friendly to mobility-impaired passengers. Would also welcome any advice on the best way to transfer her.
