My Mom recently came home from the Hospital, and she isn't even able to lift her head. She has a Hospital bed rental, and the mattress is defective. They're bringing her out a new mattress tomorrow.
What's the easiest/best way to switch out mattresses, please? She is not able to sit up or stand. Do I do it the same way I change sheets? She can roll on her side a little bit for changes.
I don't want her to fall off the side, though.
I don't have family to help, and her Health Care Home Visitors that her insurance provides, aren't allowed to lift. The bed rental company is just going to drop it off, they're not allowed to help.
Please don't suggest neighbors/church/family/friends in the area - as none of these are options for us, unfortunately.
I've called a few at home health care agencies, but they all said they don't lift.
Should I call the Paramedics and just pay their $150 fee? Any ideas? Want to avoid calling them because they are just so expensive for lift assists...
Thank you very much
