Can anyone advise what sort of equipment or techniques they have been shown to enable transfers of sufferers.
Mum has CBD and no use of her left arm but can stand at times with assistance but for whatever reason her brain and body won't allow her to do this with me anymore. With carers she does. Physios have said walkers frames not suitable due to no left arm use.
Was wondering if there is any moving and handling equipment that can be used by just one person to get Mum out of rise recline chair into a wheelchair. We just got a wheelchair delivered on Friday and she is desperate to be able to get into garden but I can't transfer her safely. We have two carers four times a day for personal care needs but the calls would mean she would be outside for hours.
The OT isn't very helpful at all so want to be able to ask for the right equipment if there is anything I can use by myself with her. She has been very upset as was waiting for wheelchair in hope would give more mobility but reality of not being able to get out of chair with just me is gutting.
