PLEASE COULD YOU HELP ME TO FIND SOME CHEAP OR FREE CEILING LIFT TO HELP HER.
Welcome Sladja. I can only imagine that watching your mom become sicker has been very very hard on you. That in conjunction with moving so far away from her. I feel for you. Keep looking and posting. We want to be here for you. I am very sorry but I am not able to help you with this lift thing that you are talking about. Keep yourself well-informed about devices and treatments as well. Try and keep your self mentally and emotionally healthy. I trust that you are looking into everything and keeping your self well informed.
The best I can do for you right now is to welcome you.
THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY
MY MOM HAD A CCSBI BEFORE ONE MONTH AGO AND SHE DID NOT FEEL ANY RELIEF AND SHE IS NOW IN BIG DEPRESSION.
SHE IS IN THE BED MOST OF THE TIME AND I WOULD LIKE TO HELP HER BUT I JUST CAME IN CANADA AND I CAN NOT BY ANY PATIENT LIFT TO SEND HER AND BECAUSE OF THAT I AM ASKING FOR HELP.
PLEASE IF ANYBODY KNOW SOME CHEAP STORE OR SOMEBODY WHO DONT NEED ANYMORE CEILLING OR PATIENT HYDRAULIC LIFT TO GIVE ME A ADDREES OR PHONE NUMBER.
sladja--Many people have read this thread and not responded – we sympathize with your mother's situation, but don't have a good answer for you. You mentioned that your mother is in Europe and you are in Canada; it must be almost impossible to handle such a problem long-distance. Would it be more possible to find a solution in the country where your mother resides? Is there a branch of the MS Society there which might offer equipment for free or for rent? Are there charitable organizations which might help you find the right equipment? Hospitals? Government agencies? Churches? Does your mother have a neighbor or friend who can act as her advocate in your place?
We can offer ideas, but we do not have the physical solution. We understand your feeling of helplessness very well.
