Looking for bariatric scale

Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Hello. I look after my bed bound mom. She's bed bound because of her weight and she recently outgrew her bariatric scale. So I'm looking for new scale and easy ways of actually weighing her anty tips or suggestions.
Hi,
She can't stand, I presume, or she could use two non-bariatric scales.

It was once necessary to weigh my brother. Hospitals sometimes have hoists with a weighing function, but the one we happened to encounter was broken. Later social services (incorrectly) told us we can't use a certain recliner if he is over 24 stone. Eventually I paid money - how much? - to have a portable weighing device brought by a company on which brother could be wheeled in wheelchair, and after he was weighed, he was hoisted back to bed and the wheelchair then weighed on its own. This is it:

This is very helpful thankyou. But I'm looking for a scale we can keep. She completely unable to move. We have to use a hoist to move her. I'd really like one of those scale hoistw but would they be able to hold my moms weight+ ?? She's also recently outgrew her specially made bariatric wheelchair so I'm needing to get a new one of those in her size/bigger!

Could u think of any other ways to weight her
At this time i dont think its too important on getting her weighed best thing is getting her bed and support. Does she have personal carers coming into wash her etc..and has she been refreed onto community detician.defo think you need more support services to help you and your mum

Yes she has a big bariatric bed with lots of gadgets. We have an arsenal of bariatric equipment. Yeah we got her a private dietician and specialists but she just wants to eat!

Thats great yous have all the equipment and bed and have been down the route of deticaians.its a sad situation with her being so young.would you not consider personal carers coming in to give u a bit of a break from doing all that care

When I go to university this year then yes. But until then I'm fine. She will actually need a new bed very soon
Thats good you are going to uni and getting carers in then.sometimes when its not family members in they will do more for carers than family.i know this of my granny she wouldnt listen to me but does what carers say lol.so sometimes its better bringing in the professionals.
