He can barely walk out of the house to the car to go to his Dr appointment. I can take him to and from his appointments, but he is so weak and I am afraid he will fall en route. It takes 30 minutes or more to get him from bed to the car. I don't like pushing him mentally to go. He begs to stay home but he MUST go. Doctors don't make house calls anymore!
We don't have a ramp or wheelchair. We have a transport chair that was working ok, but a wheelchair is safer. The wheels are larger and the transport chair wheels don't go over thresholds very well. I almost dumped him out, going into a building! It scared me to death!
Do home health aides come help get him up and out to the car and then come back to get him back to bed? I hate paying for a transport service, when I can drive myself.
