Suggestions for sleep aid/devices for elderly man w/PD?


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!

There are memory foam pillows that are concave, so the neck gets added support.  My suggestion would be to contact a medical supply company and see if they can give you any suggestions.  Good luck!
Felabration, cheap beats by dre,cheap dre beats as the concert series is known, began with the opening of the KalakuMuseum, which offers a glimpse of how Fela lived in his former home. Thousands came to the New Afrika Shrine, the performance hall where his son Femi Kuti performs each week. Through the haze of marijuana smoke, top artists in Nigeria, including Asa and Tiwa Savage, performed on stage. Most raised their fists above their heads, mirroring the famous image of the singer who called for pan-Africanism and human rights in his Fela created Afrobeat in the late 1960s, mixing the rhythm of jazz, the catchiness of pop music and traditions of African mysticism into 10-minute-long songs riffing on politics and sex in a nation only recently freed from colonialism. Many in Nigeria, at times a very religious and conservative nation, largely shied away from Fela over his heavily publicized sexual appetite and marijuana use. However, the singer has received more attention in recent years following a smash Broadway musical about his life.
