This Week's Carenote - 12/18/12

I have a question and hope someone will give me a tip. My daughter, an adult in her fifties, is quadriplegic due to MS. Her caregiver is her husband, who works from home. As of late, it is getting harder to dress her.  She cannot do this lying down on the bed and cannot bear any weight. Any ideas out there?

While looking for an affordable wheelchair cape for my Mom, I came across a website that specializes in all types of clothing and sleepwear that can be put on from the front - perfect for people who cannot bear weight. The company is Buck and Buck and they may be just what you're looking for.
