I never thought I would ask this. My father has late stage dementia and sleeps a whole lot. I have just become the caregiver since my mother is in rehab and I can't believe how incredibly hard it is to change, clean, and reposition him in the bed after he has had a bowel movement. I can't seem to get him fully on the mattress and his legs are off the bed. He is dead weight and I am exhausted from trying to move him up. Does anyone have advice on how to make the process more efficient? (By the way, he just got on hospice and a hospital bed will be ordered and a team will come next week, but in the meantime I need help.) Thank you all for your responses. This is the best site for caregiver support!
