My mother has carers going in three times a day and they have reported their suspicions that mum doesn't go to bed at night. Mum insists that she does. I don't believe it. This seems to be borne out by the state of her legs - these are very swollen, as are her feet and her skin is beginning to blister where the fluid is settling there. She spends all day (and presumably all night too) sitting in her chair in the living room. I encourage her to use her footstool to elevate her legs whenever I can, but she is fairly stubborn and refuses to follow my advice over, well, anything really. She refuses personal care and the carers do their best but won't force the issue - when they can get at her feet they just pile more aqueous cream on and this isn't doing much good, so I wash them now, just once a week for the time being. I have Doublebase for her legs, so I will apply this when I have washed her feet and legs tomorrow. I'm worried that the blisters will split and she'll end up in hospital - the doctor saw her a few weeks ago and she recommended a reclining chair that mum can sleep in if she wants to - she won't use her high density cushion so at some point we'll have an issue with pressure sores too. How can I encourage her to sleep in bed? Where's a good place to source a recliner? My other half has found some on Amazon, but I need to ensure I can be there when it's delivered to do the explaining and set it up, so I think second hand from a mobility place might be better.
