What I am concerned about is how she does this. She places a cushion and a pillow behind her head and lays like that to watch t.v. This puts her head in a very awkward position. I try to tell her that it's really not good for her to lay like that, but she says she's comfortable. I'm worried that if she continues to do this, there will be long term danage to her bones and posture.
What I wish we could do is get a medical-type bed that would raise and lower. I think that would be much more comfortable for her, and I think it would be better for her overall health. The problem is: we do not have the resources to buy something like that. Will Medicaid help with that type of equipment? Even if we could just rent one, if that's possible, that would be fine. I'm just worried about the cost. Any information anyone might have about this would be extremely helpful!!! Thanks!!!! More than anything, I want my mother to be comfortable at this point in her life.
