Suggestions for devices to help an elderly man w/parkinsons sleep better?


Posted by ljt0110

Our close friend has severe PD and his wife asked for help locating something to help prevent his neck/chin from dropping while he sleeps. Any suggestions for devices would be most welcome. She thought something similar to what one would use for a paraplegic (sp?) to support the neck would work, but we dont know what its called or where to look. He has a hospital bed and every possible type of pillow. Thanks!

I'd ask his personal health care provider to make sure any product is safe for him.
