Hello Carol,

Finally got the info you wanted on stocking, there proper name is JOBST. we justa called them job.
They are available at many places that carry supplies for people with disabilities, I talked to shopper's drug mart home health centre.
You can get light support, knee high ones for about $25.00, anything above that amount needs a prescription from the Dr. The prescription ones cost about $100.00 a pair but are covered under most health plans.
Usually one pair will do the trick, we used to wash them out when we put resident to bed and they were ready for morning.
Hope this is of help to you, take care jane
