Does Margaret look comfy in her wheelchair?
Would you want to sit like this every day unable to move yourself or get up and walk away?
Margaret lives in a care home and can't walk. Her family were upset that she was also uncomfortable and complaining of a sore bottom all day every day.
The standard wheelchair and Care Home chairs did not meet her needs for all-day seating but no-one know what to do!. She was even struggling to use cutlery to eat.
Her daughter engaged Elizabeth to prescribe a specialist seat that met all her needs.
After a full seating assessment a chair was prescribed and bought by Margaret's family.
She is now comfy and happy.
It tilts forward so she can sit at the dining table and can now even eat soup independently!
It will prevent pressure sores developing.
Elizabeth trained staff in how to adjust it to facilitate them using a hoist and sling to lift Margaret in and out. Elizabeth continues to visit to monitor as Margaret's condition progresses and make adjustments when required.
