My mom is 81 and she suffers fro HP issues, COPD, and a history of mental health issues although it is well under control. She has been hospitalized so many times since she moved in with us in 2012. Mostly due to UTI, Dehydration, is or blood pressure issues. She was in the hospital and swing bed nearly 2 months and got out at the end of Jan. 2018. We are trying and want to keep her at home but I have to admit lifting her is a problem. She can't walk only talks a few steps when PT works with her. Its as if she cant move her legs feet at all most of the time. Just getting her to stand up at potty chair is an ordeal! I end up holding her while trying to pull her clothes up. Its the same getting out of chairs and be. She hunches over and pulls away from you making it almost impossible. She is precious and I want to help her be with us at our home. I also want her to go potty as long as she can but I need to know what to do. Should I push her to do more or just accept it and hold her up??? I need to know when to and when not to.
