Hi all, this is my first post and would like some advice. My wife has SPMS and can do very little for herself now and i am her sole carer 24/7…
The difficulty i am having is lifting and transfering her multiple times during the day and night to the loo. It is on average 40 lifts a day, from chair to wheelchair, wheelchair to loo, loo to wheelchair then wheelchair to chair. She cannot weight bear and this has been going on for over 2 years and i am now struggling. I am not getting any younger and i am exhausted.
Contacted GP, MS nurse and nothing is offered as a solution ? All i hear is that i shouldnt be lifting but given no alternative suggestions.
I am really struggling with this daily routine and dont know what to do next ?
We also had a visit from occupational health and again, no real help as to the immediate issue.
Any suggestions please ?
