Hospice will continue to support us at Lieberman and that means extra nurse attention, social worker attention, music therapist, etc, etc. Eligibility is reevaluated every three months and he might be kept on due to his "End Stage Alzheimer's" diagnosis (sounds worse than it is and could go on for years!)
Meanwhile we continue "The Battle of the Chairs." I think we have had ten or eleven Broda chairs in the last three months. So many variables that need to get communicated and for some reason or other do not get "sent" or "received" or "understood" or "followed through." No one at fault, not placing blame, it has just turned into a "Comedy of Errors."
Sometimes the chair seat is too wide, or too narrow, or too short (never too long,) or it doesn't tilt back easily, or it tilts back but doesn't stay back, same for foot-rest from dysfunctional to downright broken, sometimes it is easy to push the chair other times you bounce off the walls trying to control it down the hall.
I will say that the chair provides perfect posture for Gregory's back and provides stability. I will say that it has not yet accommodated his long legs. We are getting close to a solution. You'll be the first to know (no - Gregory will be the first ;-)
