Tweva – Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories. My mother was 93 when I was her care provider. We had hospice come in every day but I did not wait for them to do everything.
“Bed Wedge” – What I found was a huge pillow device that looked like the upper part of a LazyBoy recliner. This way she could sit up and read or watch the bird feeder outside her window. This also allowed for washing her hair. Instead of the thick part being down you have her lay back with the thick part up behind her shoulders. This way she would lay back but I had room for a plastic basin to fit under her head. In the hospital the nurses used a foam spray on her hair. Said to be as good as a shampoo but it did not give the same results. Washing her hair helped her to calm herself and also gave me a chance to do something for her. Your list and Selco’s have now become my new guidelines for hygiene and first aid.
