I have several issues with my tendons and muscles that limit my strength in my arms, I also have fibromyalgia that can make it painful to try to assist my parents (in their late 60s) when they have trouble getting up from a seated position. Does anyone have any suggestions for helping them up from a chair or the toilet? My mother has severe bouts of vertigo that makes it impossible for her to stand up on her own for several hours, but she gets severe vomiting and diarrhea when the vertigo occurs so I have to help her on and off the toilet. Are there any very narrow wheelchairs that you have used? Our bathroom has an extremely narrow door so a normal wheelchair can't fit. But I think being able to slide her over onto a wheelchair could be easier than trying to support her. Although I am not sure if I would then be able to push the chair with my arms?? Is it very hard to push a wheelchair?
