    I kinda think this sling IS the right size. We'll try it and see and have lots of people here the first time to make sure that she won't fall through.
    Unfortunately for regular use, there will be...

    The manual is really really really not good. It's really for the standard sling. We can practice with me.
    We have a PT. The PT just thinks the petite size sling is too big for my Grandma and she'll...
  3. Thank you Linda. I totally wish you lived closer....

    Thank you Linda. I totally wish you lived closer. I need someone who knows what they're doing to help, even for 10 minutes. Our sling seems to be missing that little strap that's going between her...

    Thank you Linda. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. If anyone could post a photo of the sling hooked up to the lift, that would help too.

    The way the PT hooked it up, I would fall...

    I bought the divided leg sling. The instruction book didn't say how to use it so we got a PT and she can't figure it out either. Can anyone explain how it works?
    This is the link for the...

    Thanks, we got the lift. It was through insurance (Medicare) and it's a rental for 13 months and then we own it, but it's rusty and sticky, it's definitely been used by other people. Shouldn't it...

    LOL, she does look thrilled.

    I actually won't be using the hoyer lift. I can lift my Grandma up and down(she's tiny). The lift is for my Mom and maybe my Aunt who will be staying with her quite...

    Thanks, Linda and MSWIFE:)

    The last lift we got, the delivery guy was showing us how it works, but he was really rushing through it. I'm assuming the next delivery guy will do some instruction. ...

    Personally, I used benadryl now and then. However, after a few nights, it stopped being effective. It's HORRIBLE for people with dementia and many elderly people in general.
    Have you tried things...

    Oops, I do have one more question.
    I ended up just ordering the sling on my own, but I'm getting the lift through a local medical supply company. Should I get a physical therapist to come and show...

    That makes perfect sense. I don't know why I couldn't understand it before. Thank you and I hope your daughter enjoys her trip:)

    Invacare makes a similar one, a "divided leg sling" I think I'll try for this one, it has a commode opening.

    I really had to do a ton of leg work on this one including calling Invacare myself. ...
  13. This one doesn't have a commode opening. I'm...

    This one doesn't have a commode opening. I'm guessing that's why they said it wasn't for use with a commode. So you just take it off on the commode and then put it back on?
  14. Thank you so much, MSWIFE:).

    Thank you so much, MSWIFE:).
  15. Thanks, Linda, so much. I appreciate all of your...

    Thanks, Linda, so much. I appreciate all of your input. I'm trying so hard to make this work. I gotta find a sturdy commode. The one we have has wheels and looks like it could tip over if the...

    Thanks:)
    One last question (I think it's my last one)
    The site says the sling is not intended to transfer from chair to commode and only works for 25% of the people, any idea why?...

    Michael Emerson said during an interview that for people who buy the whole season on DVD or Blueray, that there will be a 12-14 minute epoligue showing just that:)

    My Grandma isn't always cooperative due to the dementia- she's quite agitated and combative at times and I can see the hoyer lift being a huge source of confusion for her leading to major agitation....

    Thanks.
    Unfortunately, this is being paid for by Medicare, so my options are limited.
    It appears that the quickfit padded sling is not for use with the standard hoyer lift:(. It's for a different...

    Linda, do you know the name of the sling?
    I found this one, is your like this? It's hard to tell if it's the same sling without seeing a person in the sling for me....

    I already sent it back. If I hadn't been hanging on to the chains and if I leaned forward, I would have fallen out. This sling is actually for my Grandma who has dementia. She can't remember not to...
