Hello there, This is a really dumb question - sorry! Dad is at the stage where he can just about stand though he's very wobbly and sometimes it takes a few goes. Mum can just about transfer him to/from bed etc (though it's an absolute struggle). I'm trying to convince mum it's time to accept outside help and so I'm thinking about what the help will be like - so I can explain it to her in a positive way and encourage her. I just wondered, when Dad can no longer stand, but isn't at the stage where he will be in bed all day...what happens? I know there are hoists, but I can imagine at Dad's current stage of agitation he will not have any of that kind of thing. Will he need 2 carers? Or will a carer usually be happy to lift if one of us is also there to be lifting him? Sorry if it's a daft question, I've never had to think of this before (Now that I've found this forum, be ready for lots of daft questions!). Am just trying to stay one step ahead as much as possible, for the past year I feel like we've been 100 paces behind and never ready for anything. Thank you so much!
