My husband, except for being able (sometimes) to pull himself up on his walker to a wobbly stand. We've engaged the services of our local Provide-a-Ride with a wheelchair lift and finally made it to the doctor's, but once again, after sitting in the wheelchair for about 4 hours (we waited an hour for the van to come back to pick him up), he was unable to get up out of the chair and we had to call our son for help. Does anyone know of a device we can purchase that would raise him up like a regular lift chair/recliner would? I am hesitant to call 911 each time we go out, especially since it's not a medical emergency. Also, to bring a home health aide, even if we had one, wouldn't be worth their time. Perhaps a solid, high, chair pad? Any suggestions? Thanks.
