My 91 year old dad has Parkinson's and dementia and is in hospice. We are currently caring for him at home with a live-in caregiver. But things are getting more and more difficult and we are looking into transferring him to a nursing home. He has been bedridden since being released from the hospital in late August. Hospice has supplied a bed with full rails but he tries to get out of bed a few times a day. He can get his knees over the rail but then wears himself out. He does not remember that his legs can't hold him. We have applied to a nursing home with really good ratings and recommendations, but they do not use full bed rails or alarms because they are considered restraints. I have read that more and more nursing homes are moving away from restraints. The good news is that the nursing home will have the ability to get him out of bed and into a chair. Should we be worried about the lack of restraints?
