My OH has spent the last 2 hours trying to stand up from his bed;. it frequently takes this long, other times he can get up in a few minutes, there seems to be no rhyme nor reason to it. Once he’s up he can walk around fine, with or without a zimmer. We had the bed raised last week but I think the problem is one of increasing frailty (eats very little, wasting away) so he has insufficient strength and also his brain is not always communicating with his legs. He is having a memory assessment here at home next Friday; what else can I do before then? Contact SS for some sort of assessment? Get back to the OT? Go straight to a care company? The problem with the latter is that even if they came in to get him up, after they leave if he wanted to stand up again it would just be me here to help and he vociferously refuses to let me help him. All the time that he is trying to get up he is shouting and moaning at himself in frustration, wearing himself out in the process. Of course, I could just keep him in bed until the memory assessment (we have managed to change his pull ups on the bed before, even pooh-y ones!) but my fear is that he is on the verge of becoming bedridden. My head is scrambled at the moment.
