My mother has got to the stage where she needs to be hoisted from chair to commode to bed to wheelchair. She needs two carers to hoist and toilet her. This means that she is only being toileted 4 times a day and having her pad changed at these times. Also, she is spending up to 9 hours in the night without being changed. This regime has only just started. I cannot change her by myself as she needs moving in bed by rolling to one side and back again and it needs 2 people to do this. Similarly, in the day she is changed when she is hoisted from sitting so I cannot do this alone either. I hadn't considered the full implications when she came out of respite and this is all new to me. I am concerned about her sitting in soiled pads and had somehow thought I would be able to change her in betweentimes. Has anyone else cared for someone in a similar condition?
