When did you change LO to a hospital bed?
She's also been coughing more at night, and I think being elevated in bed would be good. She in Stage 6 but has been declining recently. How did you handle the switch? I feel torn but I feel for safety and both of our health reasons we need to.
My DW is on Hospice care now for about three months. I just got a hospital bed last week as getting her out of bed was finally taking it toll on my back. She can't sit up by herself of stand and the lifting was killing me. Just the fact that I am able to raise the bed so she is in more of a sitting position and also raise the height so I don't have to bend made a world of difference and it has only been a week that we have had the bed. Don't wait.
If she is on Hospice care they will pay for it. If not on Hospice care apply for it. Sounds like you would qualify in my opinion. Best of luck & best wishes to you.
