My Mom has late stages of Alzheimers and doesn't walk anymore. We do get her in a wheelchair and other chairs and use the best pillows we know to use. I'm getting a new hospital bed and ordered an air mattress for on it, which we should be getting soon. I had her nurse check her ulcers the other day, and she doesn't think they look all that bad. We are using Silvadeen cream to prevent infection, and I keep her diapers unhooked and leave the ulcers dry out at nighttime. I also use a hairdryer on cool to help dry them. We use duoderm patches during the day only. I use Calmoseptine cream to help prevent more, but lately, it seems as one clears up, she gets a new one. Right now, the one where her tailbone protrudes is the biggest one. I have her sleeping on her side to help that one get better. I really hate to have to leave her laying down all the time, plus being on her side too much too. She's been non-ambulatory for almost two yrs now, and this is the worse her ulcers have been. THe nurse says to keep the diapers off as much as possible, so I just lay it in her crotch while sleeping. She doesn't move anything while sleeping except her one leg. What else can I do?
