I am caring for my 83 year old mother who is pretty overweight, has type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Usually I am able to provide for all her needs in home. However, lately she started to have more and more difficulty getting out of bed. She can't get up without a lot of help due to weak muscles and pain in arms and legs (due to age). The situation deteriorates rapidly to a point where I don't know how to get her out of bed and on a toilet. Not without injuring my back. I am at a loss what to do. Do I look for some kind of facility where she can live safely? As her official in-home service provider I feel unable to physically assist her because of her weight. Do I look into hiring another person? Are there devices that might help her get out of bed? She usually uses a rollator (walker) for walking,
If I can't get her out of the bed or put a pampers on her, her safety and living conditions will suffer. I need advice. Thank you.
