We are desperate to try to take my Dad, who has MS, to a family wedding. This will involve about 4-5 hours of driving. He is immobile now and we use hoists at home to get him from bed to chair. We do have a wheelchair adapted car that we can get him in and out of easily but he does fatigue very quickly when sitting up in the wheelchair and I worry about pressure sores if he stays in one position for so long.
Does anyone have any experiences they could share with how they’ve managed similar situations. We have had a number of thoughts, such as private ambulance/stretcher hire but so far my google searches have not shown up any companies at all offering this kind of service surprisingly unless it’s for medical reasons! Another thought would be whether there were places that could provide a bed (and a hoist) for a short period of time, so we could lie him down, change position, and rest for a couple of hours on the way up.
Any thoughts and suggestions greatfully recieved
