Default Re: What Stage of ALS

I'm assuming that if he's a vet, you're already signed up with the VA for equipment and services...

If not, get your doc to prescribe the equipment that you need! A hoyer lift is necessary, a transfer board will help as well. I think that some of the hospital beds that others have customized are pretty comfortable... Maybe you can start a thread asking what others recommend there.

I also vote for the cute guy helping, rather than the cute girl!
