Has anyone used a Hoyer lift sling to standing position?.

I am 280 pounds, and can "walk" with walker, but on days when caregiver is not here, my wife is not strong enough to get standing from shower chair. Once I am up, I can...

Wife wants to do one more cruise, but I envision all the problems transferring and getting in and out of bathroom and bed!

I have difficult time reaching behind me to flush.
If the toilet handle was longer or larger, it would help.
