 Pain has to be controlled if they are in pain for sure
 
Fear can aggravate a persons pain as can lonliness isolation and the thought of no longer being part of the " society" as they should be ,,,,
 
Home Care
 
Diet
Some foods can cause constipation while other loose stools ......'
Knowing what food   causes what reaction is a big help to the caregiver In my experience .....
 
Exercises
....extended bed rest can lead to bed sores and broken down skin,constipation,back aches ....general mobility and loss of muscle strength..walking breathig and standing are good ways to do this ....there are many others but you can look up on the net to check it out ....
 
Skin Care
Bedsores are one of the biggest problems loved ones face at home ..they are extrememly painful as well as ALMOST avoidable ....
Keep person changing positions on bed ....
 
You can do this with a draw sheet ( regular sheet folded overand placed under loved ones ) this Transfer sheeet is alos great for the transfeerrring of them to one place or another.....
 
Will be on all weekend and then see from there will post more info

If placed in a NH or Retirement home I implore you to visit as much as you can and be totally involved in "Nursing Care Plan"
Do not think you are unable to do so it is your loved one that is there

Take care
