I'm currently researching the supportive wheelchairs as opposed to a gerichair. I have seen the gerichair in person and how it works. What I am curious about is whether the supportive wheelchair offers anything more. My LO, who is in MC, last stage dementia, is now leaning quite a bit. My LO, who is in MC, last stage dementia, is now leaning quite a bit. Meds have been reduced, but, she's still declining. She will lean to the side or the front. It seems her body is just not able to hold itself up. (Physical therapist eval, is not candidate for therapy.) I want something that can help support her from slumping, because I think that would be uncomfortable and not good long term. I have seen some on-line that have supportive cushions on the side, but, do they really work? Other's experience would be appreciated. One also has a head brace, but, I'sm not sure how her head would be kept in it or how practical that would be.
