My mom can't sit up without support.
I know that she should be upright when she eats or drinks, but what if she swallows something and it goes into her windpipe? What should I do?
Second question: what if she is eating and gets choked on something? I can't really get behind her to do the Heimlich maneuver, I could try to lean her forward a little and strike the back but my hand would be up high on her back. Would that position force the choked food down further instead of up and out?
