    Thick secretions in the back of my throat

    Forbes Norris recommended Mucinex (but the generic kind) and it absolutely helped. My PALS is not on a trach so uses a cough assist, which has been a god send. It clears all his thick mucous out perfectly. Not sure if it can be used if someone is on a trach but definitely worth looking into.

    Hoyer lift

    I use the hoyer lift for my PALS by myself. if you are taught how to use it safely it definitely can be done. The lift acts as the second person in caregiving.
