My dad has been in hospital since New Year's Day, he has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, he is not able to breath without oxygen and has no strength in his legs so is unable to walk, he has lost 2 stone in weight since being in hospital , he has mouth ulcers so finds it difficult to eat, he is 83 years old , he is starting g to develop bed sores , he was on an air bed at first which helps prevent bedsores but they moved him from HDU to a respiratory ward and is in a "normal" bed , he has been able to sit for a couple of hours on a chair but it isn't very comfortable does anyone have any ideas if I can buy something to make him more comfortable? It is so hard to see my dad like this and if anyone has gone through this maybe you can give me some advise to make him comfortable. Thank you in advance
