If possible, you should seek to have your grandfather admitted to a rehabilitative nursing home.

These places administer daily rehab therapy.

Unfortunately the criterion for admission are strict, and it may not be possible to get in to one.

The best thing to do is to have him admitted to such a facility, visit him daily, and pay for supplementary therapy with an aide who will be with him in addition to that provided by the home. Sometimes they go along with. Sometimes not.

The dfuties of this aide will be to be with him during the therapy, learn the exercises, and when he returns home assist him.

Bed sores are avoided by a special mattress that inflates and deflates. Ask your physician.
