Bipolar Disorder/Mother's Health


My mother is 95 years old, a bedridden stroke patient over 3 years.Her health is very bad, now we can see her bones only. She has bedsores suffering. we can not move her, very fragile. Doctor says nothing much can be done except regular dressing of the sores. How can she be helped. I can not bear the pain.

I am the second son, born on 4th January 1942 at 2120 hours, in South India.

Hi Ramasubramanian,

That must be very difficult for you. There are special bed sore bedding available to take he pressure off the sores. I suggest you discuss this with your doctor, who should be able to order or prescribe the right pressure sore pillow or bedding.
