    Tongue

    Re: Tounge You can try using a mouth rinse for dry mouth, just make sure what ever she uses doesn't have alcohol in it. Along with that she can use a fluoride gel before bed. Maybe even try a humidifier so the room isn't so dry.* Hope you find something that helps!

    hoyer lift or mo lift

    I would sugest a hoyer lift, thats what I have had the best luck transfering patients with. It also gives you alot more options where you can use it then one whith a built in track. A little tip when you start looking into them is to make sure the hooks whee the sling hooks on doesn't move...

    Thoughts on this gift.

    Wonderful idea! ITs a great way to have the reach out to her and for her to know she has everyone support! Another idea (not sure how crafty you are) but have everyone decorate a quilt square and then assemble it into a small lap blanket, doesn't have to be anything big or extravagant.... we...

    Caregiver question... bathroom issue

    I would suggest using the adjustable briefs from like CVS or wallgreens.... the store brand works just fine and saves you money. The adjustable ones would be easier to work with I think. Also have you tried giving him something to lean up against in the bathroom when he is using it. I worked...
