Mum is in end stage vascD, totally immobile, needs hoisting, doubly incontinent and unresponsive in every way. She's now developed several stage 2 pressure sores and has an air wave mattress, with a two-hour turning regime. Staff at the CH put her back into bed - fully clothed - for two hours after breakfast and two hours after dinner every day, and she never looks very comfortable - trousers all bunched up, sweating with woolly jumper on etc. I know I could never rest in bed fully clothed and can't imagine it will be any better for her. Getting her dressed in any case is very difficult as she is rigid and resistant. I am thinking it would be better to leave her in her nightie and dressing gown all day - she could just have a throw over her knees when she's in her wheelchair in the lounge or dining room. I can envisage the usual 'loss of dignity, trying to keep things normal' type of response from the CH, but mum has gone way beyond this now and just needs to be comfortable. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
