Moving with a terminally ill or physically disabled loved one can be stressful. A long-distance move can be extremely uncomfortable for an ill family member. Whether the individual is bed-ridden or requires continual care, you should take time to consider the arrangements that he or she may require. Here are some tips that can help you prepare for a long-distance move with a bed-ridden individual.
1. Hire a nurse who specializes in traveling with patients.
If your loved one will be traveling with you, then you may want to hire a traveling nurse to assist you. A traveling nurse can move a bed-ridden patient and also administer medication to the patient. A nurse may also be able to bathe, clothe and feed your loved one. This can take stress off of your shoulders during the move.
