I hope her insurance pays for it! The nursing home ordered it while she was in skilled nursing rehab program.
Does the lower part of hospital beds adjust to different heights? Mom suffers with edema and should always have legs elevated. She does lift her feet in her recliner. Will this help her get in and out of bed? How do I know the correct height? Will home health help with these issues? We start home health tomorrow. She has Parkinson’s so they will focus on balance and strength.
Also, in the skilled nursing rehab that she just did they placed these cloth boots on because her heels need protection. Can I order these boots somewhere?
Her roommate had a sign in the nursing home that she had to be turned every two hours when in bed. Is this common and what does that mean? A different side? Or back?
The elderly have horrible problems with areas of their skin breaking down.
Do I need special sheets? Are the hospital beds easy to operate? What do we do with the bed after she dies? Is it returned somewhere? Is there a time limit on keeping a bed for home use?
My mom might live to be 100! Who knows? She may outlive me. Sorry, just being sarcastic. Haha.
Anyone with info, please help. Thanks for feedback.
