Hi all you lovely people who answered my plea for 'any advice please at this stage'. I had the Physio and OT visit yesterday they assessed my caring problems, I told them about this blog and your advice on what you yourselves are using, and they agreed I need a electric stand/return machine, there are two types available, they ordered one yesterday and it arrived today, the ot will be back tomorrow to demonstrate how to use it, I think the service is wonderful, hope it will make my caring easier, especially .my back, should this not be suitable for me they can change it, also ordered a tray for John to clip to his armchair for feeding, and recommended paracetamol in liquid form as John now struggles to swallow tablets, they get stuck in his throat and then starts to burn.
By the way they think this blog is great for us to discuss our problems and help each other out, as we're all in the same boat and can benefit from sympathetic understanding. I feel so much better today, and know they will be there for any further stages. Thanks and bless you all love xxx Jean
